  • Sending my sympathy and prayers to let you know my heart goes out to the Dugan family at this time of sadness.

    With deepest sympathy.

  • Don’t think of him as gone away, his journey’s just begun.
    Life hold so many facets, this earth is only one.

    Just think of him as resting from the sorrow and the tears,
    In a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years.

    Think how he must be wishing, that we could know today
    How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

    And think of him as living, in the hearts of those he touched
    For nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.

    May you find comfort in your memories.
    With love and prayers ~ Chris and Althea Fletcher
