...And the curtains close

“Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”

- Eskimo proverb

Douglas was transferred to the Hospice of the Comforter's Hospice House last night and quietly passed away in his sleep this morning at 3am.

I am sad but I am also relieved because he is now not in pain anymore and he went the way he wanted, with Kyle and I beside him.

Jimmy has mentioned that quite a few folks are asking whether we will be doing a service in addition to the Wake Doug requested for his 47th birthday.

Yes, Kyle and I will be having a service.

If you are interested in attending, we would love to have your company.

We do request that instead of people sending flowers to the service, you make a donation in Doug's honor to either of the following organizations: - Douglas Lynch Equipment Fund

For those folks who would like to send flowers, small gifts for Kyle, cards etc. before the service, this is our address:

Address: Marjorie Marshall/Kyle Lynch

2749 Scarlet Road
Winter Park FL 32792

If you wish to contact me personally for whatever reason, here is the information:

cell phone: (407) 247 5165
text message: (407) 247 5165

I will post service and accommodation information as soon as everything is finalized.

Thank you to you all for your love, continued prayers and support.

- Marjorie

I am truly sad to hear the news. He was a wonderful guy, and true friend to all who knew him. I hope that there is some comfort in that his suffering is over, and that the love he had for you and your son can carry you through the pain of his loss.

We send our sincere sympathy and love to Doug’s precious and beautiful son Kyle and his spouse Marjorie, and to his grieving and loving parents, grandparents and his special friends. It is somewhat unbelievable to realize that he is no longer among us. How sad that he lost his very brave and gallant fight against those formidable odds. He was honest, fun, serious, intelligent, gentle, kind, loving…. We met him when he was nearly two - our son’s “best friend” throughout their pre-school years. He was already a loving and kind little boy - the best “best friend” our son could have had. Doug’s passing has left a huge void in this world - we will all miss him. As we reflect on our connections with Doug, a treasury of happy memories will always be there—may such memories bring you peace and give you strength in knowing that those we love are never gone, but live within our hearts forever.
