Douglas Conway Morrow

November 30, 1952 — February 24, 2022

My journey here is over…. I made it home. On this Earth…I am never more to roam. I crossed the river, soared past the great divide. I had no fear in me, for Jesus waited on the other side. He took my hand, said come walk with me: My blind eyes were opened, what joy I now see: I rest with Angels. No more pain for me. Please don’t stand and weep, for my soul has been set free… I love you all and would have liked to stay, but sweet joy is mine, just like I prayed Take the hand of the Lord on the path, stay straight and when your life is over, I will be waiting by the gate. SFC (R) Douglas C. Morrow 69, of Kyle, West Virginia went to be with the Lord on Thursday, February 24, 2022, at his home surrounded by family.
