  1. I am so sorry to hear of Doyle’s passing. He and your mom were a big part of my early years. I lost my mom in March, and I can see yours and my parents sitting in heaven playing bridge. They had many good times together.

  2. The world has lost a beautiful, gentle soul! Doyle was a true southern gentleman! He and Dene were wonderful examples of what love & marriage were meant to be. Oh, and they were so proud of their two sons! Our condolences to your family. May he rest in peace!

  3. We were so privileged to know Doyle (and Dene). There will never be kinder, more gentlemanly fellow with a traffic sense of humor. We missed them both when they moved to Bellingham . Such a devoted, fun couple.
