The Life and Death of Douglas Edgar

It doesn't get any easier when we try to put into words how it feels to lose Douglas, the constant heart ache and lump in the back of your throat when you're trying to hold back the tears has not gone away since the day we lost him.  We entered 2020 as a whole family, we are leaving 2020 incomplete. 

On the 21st September my beloved brother and father were involved in a fatal traffic accident. My brother sadly passed away, whilst leaving my father with life changing injuries. 

Douglas left this world after 25 years, he was a loving father, he was a trickster son forever playing pranks on my parents even into adulthood,  he was a protective brother who would scare away the bullies, he was the bestest friend to many and gave out life advice learnt from his own personal battles. He touched the hearts of so many people, and those who were lucky enough to call him friend would know that he would move the world to bring a smile to your face.

Douglas left behind "little man", baby Doug, his 2 year old son. We will always ensure baby Doug will know how much his father absolutely adored him and though Douglas wont be there to watch him grow up and hold his hand through the tough times we will be there as a family in his place.

Today we wish to raise money in support to pay for Douglas' funeral, with the majority to be placed into a secured bond for his son when he comes of age. As a family we would be eternally grateful for any kind of donations,  and if you are unable to donate then just by sharing this with people would help a great deal.
