To all of the Van Meurs family I extend my deep sympathies. I pray for the Lord Himself to comfort you in the loss of Doug. Your 2nd cousin, Jewl

We are saddened to know that our cousin Doug has gone to be with our Savior. May his family be comforted in their grief by our loving and merciful Lord.
Although we did not know him personally, he leaves a hole on the fabric of the Van Meurs/Brondsema Family.
# Andy Youells 2018-10-30 02:55
May the many happy memories you have with Doug, help you thru this difficult time, and may those same memories in time bring a smile to your heart when you think of them. I am on bended knee offering prayers for you all.
