Hi grandpa, it was an honor for Taylor to introduce us. The short time I knew you I always saw you laughing and quoting TikTok videos. You brought to much love and light to Taylor and I know she and her whole family loved you so much. RIP grandpa

Papaw Dougie was a character (a cartoon character, as he said of himself to the great grandkids). He had an amazing sense of humor. He loved his family with all of him. He loved food! We loved spending what precious time we had with him.
