Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us every day.
Robby John Douglas, 35, of Clay, WV, unexpectedly passed away with his beloved cousin, John Eric Douglas, in a tragic car accident on October 12, 2017. He was the loving partner of Frankie Kerr. They shared four and a half happy years together.
