May the friends and family of Mr. Dalrymple find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

To all family and friends, I am sorry for your loss. Difficult times such as these are made better when we consider Jehovah's comforting words found in the Bible.1 Corinthians 15:26 helps comfort us in knowing that God's Kingdom will bring death to it's end. This is just one of many comforting promises that Jehovah will fulfill. I hope this brings you some comfort during this difficult time.

Bruce and Beverly, Yvonne and I pass along our thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Jack Welch, Savannah, Ga

In the short time I knew Doug, I truly enjoyed his conversations, friendship and humor. His love of TCU and golf always highlighted his spirit of "never give up." His laughter was great and I will miss him greatly. Unfortunately, I will miss his funeral Thursday as I am not arriving back to Savannah until later that day; however, I will raise a glass in his honor and remember what he said each time we finished a golf round..."Do you have time for a bevy or 2?" I will and I will miss him. Cal

Calvin Langmade, Savannah, GA

Doug was a wonderful friend and a great man. We will miss him. Our prayers are with his family.

Sandi and Jim Caldwell, Savannah, GA

Todd and family, Doug and I remember your Mom and Dad as two people who brightened our time in Farmington. I enjoyed sitting in Patty's kitchen and laughing at her banter. And your Dad was easy and fun to be with--in particular I remember a barn fundraiser. He was a good sport. I know you will miss him and out thoughts with you.

Cheryl and Doug Seaver, Essex, , CT

Bonnie and Frank, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult and sad time.

I was heartbroken to read of Doug’s passing. He had a unique combination of common sense and humor. He was of course , the straightt man to Patty’s comedy. They were sooo good together. My deepest sympathy to all the Family and especially Todd and Glen.

Chris Oswick, Litchfield, , Ct

Bonnie my deepest condolences to you and you family. I remember Doug from school and whenever I was over you house on high school. I’m so sorry.

, ,

I'm very sorry to hear of Doug's passing. He was a good friend to my dad and always had the best stories from their TCU days. I know it will not be the same planning football season without him.

Maura (Dick Beach's daughter), New York, NY

I'm very saddened to hear of Doug's passing. I worked with him for many years at Chubb Insurance and we were able to reconnect for lunch a couple of years ago in Hilton Head. I remember Doug for his fun-loving nature, rational mind, and great advice. I consulted with Doug on business matters, electronic gadgets, you name it, and he was always there to offer his advice and support. A couple of sayings that Doug liked to use "If you have a job to do, do it right, or don't do it at all" and "it's better to apologize later than to ask for permission" still stick out in my mind. Doug was a great man, and my condolences go out to the family.

Sarah Stone, Kensington, CT

We were so sorry to hear of Doug's death. We had talked to him a couple of weeks ago, congratulating him on his hole-in-one. We met Patti and Doug at the infamous Friday Night at Marshwood before they moved down. We had some great times with them. GREAT FRIEND!

Dear Bev & Bruce, we just heard of your loss this weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these difficult times.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

Dear Family - Sending this with a sad heart. Doug was a kind sweet man and we will truly miss him. May the Lord shine his light upon Doug and family. Peace, Ernie and Sandy Thompson

Ernie and Sandy Thompson, Savannah, Ga

Nancy and I are very sad about Doug’s death. We have been friends since he and your mom arrived at The Landings. He spoke often, with great pride, of his children and grandchild. We often shared stories of our childhood and growing up in the fifties. We were both founding members of the “nine”. Nine guys sitting around swapping stories and enjoying a “bevy”. Doug was passionate about his family and his friends. We will miss Him and think of him often. Our prayers are with Doug and his family.
