From all Doug’s friends at New Life:
It should have been a normal Monday, another beginning of a normal week here at New Life. Instead, with a very heavy heart we received the saddest of news: a former New Life resident, Douglas, had passed away, his mum had just informed us. A wave of grief took over our hearts and minds as we tried to cope with his death. Doug, or Mohawk Doug as we used to call him around here, always had a smile on his face, a kind word for everyone and interesting stories to share. We will always remember you walking around with your headphones on, drinking from your fancy tea bottle, playing frisbee by the pool or table tennis in the dining hall, and greeting everyone in sight. He was happy and loved at New Life and will be greatly missed by those with whom he created strong bonds of friendship.
Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends and we hope that wherever Doug is now, that he has found some peace.
