  2. My most heartfelt condolences to the entire Douglass family. What a wonderful person Misses Douglass was for all people who were fortunate to be touched by her grace. I’ll never forget her special hospitality and kindness she showed to all of Joe’s friends.

  3. My heartfelt sympathy to the Douglass Family. Mrs. Douglass was a beautiful, vivacious and gracious lady who was loved by so many friends of her children. This is a sad loss for all of you, but may you find peace, comfort and strength in the beautiful, lasting and loving tribute you all are to her and her graciousness and special gifts that each and every one of you, her dear family, is. YOU are her lasting legacy. She was loved by many and shall be missed by all.

  4. I used to live down the street from the Douglass’s and babysat the girls. I will always remember Jeanne and what a good mother she was to her children as well as a good wife. My sympathy is with the family. Kathy Novy
