To the dear family of Doug Stevens, please accept our sincere condolences. Our prayers are with you at this difficult time. We didn't know he had passed. We only found out when seeing all the cars at Cabin Hill Church and looked up to see if anyone we knew had gone to be with the Lord. I wish we could've come, but Roger just had surgery, and it's difficult for him to get out at this point. All our love and prayers. Doug was a good man! Love, Roger and Linda Terry

Doug and Doris , were wonderful people who were warm and kind . I have so many memories of them and the farm , haying , playing basketball , John Little and Grandma Little. I used mow there lawns , Fall Clove Picnics and the list of memories goes on and on. People like this don't exist in the world today. To the family , I am so sorry for your loss , hope that you use this time to get closer to each other and to Jesus. I was blessed to have known them. Doris in the Cafeteria and Doug in his quite way working on the farm. God bless you ,
