The family of Norris Hood would like to extend our sincere thanks to the wonderful people at New Century Hospice for the great care that was given, especially our nurse Markle and Shamelda who took care of Doug. Also our wonderful sitters, Larry York, Chona York, and Carol Williams. Without their help I would have not been able to care for Doug.
Family and friends may sign the online guestbook or leave a personal note to the family at www.resthavenbatonrouge.com.
So sorry for your loss. Will keep you and all of your family in my prayers. My thoughts and prayers are with you today.

My heart is with you Angela. Doug lived a great life and had a wonderful family. I remember when you and Doug adopted Teresa you both were so excited, then you adopted Joseph, your family was complete. Doug can now look down from heaven to watch over his family and be there in spirit. Don't be sad, be joyful that you had some wonderful forty-five years together. He's in no pain, he's in a better place. My love and prayers to you, Teresa and Joseph. May God Bless you all
