*Update: My brother, Doug, continues on with his duties with his congregation in St. Agatha. His grandchildren are a constant delight and absorb some of his energy as well. He and Dorene are planning a trip to England this fall where Doug wishes to visit a multidisciplinarian health facility in Marylebone, London. His life is full and enjoyable as retirement should be. He meets for coffee twice a week with my brother, Don, and me.
*Further update: Doug has now retired from his ministerial duties and is enjoying a full retirement surrounded by his wonderful family. Since Petes passing he and his twin brother Don ( my father ) continue their weekly coffee time. The closeness of the three brothers and their dedication to each others well being has been an inspiration.
*Update April 2019: It is with great sadness that I update this post to reflect the recent passing of my uncle Doug.
Doug was truly an inspiring man. His love and light shines brightly on in the hearts of his daughters, son-in laws, grandchildren, his widow Dorene and in all of us that were blessed by having him in our lives.
