I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Doug. I met one of his nephews in the Streator City Park while visiting the town for the first time in over 20 years. It was quite a coincidence to make a connection to the Chalkey family since I used to babysit for all five of the "kids" when I was a kid myself! I have fond memories of the whole group: Doug, Dee, Dennis, Tim and Tom. My sincere sympathy to the entire family.

Dear Chalkey family I am sincerely sorry about the loss of your dear loved one Douglas.
I know words could not describe the grief you are personally experiencing but please
allow the precious memories & support of friends & family help carry you during these difficult time. Also Another source of comfort is found in God's written word the Bible where the Creator of life tells us what the hope can be for such ones like your dear Tommy in the near future is to have life again.
God guarantees that: ""From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them."-Hosea 13:4
Please accept my deepest sympathies & a warm invitation for you to find more comfort at jw.org
