To the Lough Family,
I just wanted to extend my deepest sympathies at learning of Doug’s passing. Although I had not seen him in many years, I remember him fondly from winters in Pompano-especially selling him one of my all time favorite horses, Cambridge, as well as Alma Lobell. My heart goes out to you all-he was far too young, and will be greatly missed. Warmly,
Kim Myers, Saratoga Springs, NY

Linda,Jim and Dave. Sorry to hear about Doug. We had some really good times when we were kids. I still remember going to my first horse race with Curt and Doug in Marysville. I apologize about not making it to the viewing but we have been out of town for the last few days. Kim and I send thoughts and prayers to your family’s.

So sorry to hear about Doug. I haven’t seen him in a while , but we always had a great time when we did. Played golf in Pompano with him years back. We had a dogleg and of course , Doug cut it off by playing across the water to an island . He always went for it ! Mike Davis

Jim, Linda, and David,
Words can’t even express how I felt when Scott called me and said that Doug had passed away. My heartfelt condolences and prayers to you. I have so many fond memories of Doug! He was at our house so much in earlier years that it was like having a third brother! And he was one of the few people who could always get my dad to smile and laugh! I have no doubt that Doug, Mick, and my dad are together once again reliving past memories. In your grief, I hope you can let warm happy memories give you comfort in the coming days, months, and years. Please know that I’ll be thinking of you all and will keep Doug and you in my prayers. I wish I could be there to say goodbye to Doug in person. Take care!
