Doug Akins was one of the classmates that I grew up with as early as elementary school and has always been such an outstanding person and a representative of a Christ Follower. I pray for his family that they will find strength during this season in their lives. Friend and Classmate for eternity (Carlos L. Greene)

To the Family, May fond memories of Doug bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before he passed away. I remember the good person and good times we shared as kids growing up on Burns Court as next door neighbors. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family. Corbitt Black and Family
