My condolences to you and your families on the loss of your dad. Doug was a wonderful neighbour, I always enjoyed seeing his friendly face and having a chat. It makes me very sad to think that he isn’t next door anymore. We will miss him a lot and will think of him often as Roger continues to build his fence. I have no doubt he’s still watching!

So sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. I’ve known him since I was a young girl as he worked with Dad, Cyril Butler, for many years. He always had a mile and a a laugh for everyone. Out condolences to his family and friends.

Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on the passing of your dad.

Please accept sincere condolences for your loss. Our memories will keep their spirit alive. Stay strong.. 🙏
