Memories of DougI am so sorry about the passing of Doug. From the time we met in the early 1970s Doug was always an original and a great and loyal friend. Many years have passed since we spent time together but every time we saw each other, we quickly sped through the years. I will always remember Doug as a helper who was much more focused on making sure everyone else was ok. It certainly had a lot to do with how we was raised. Nancy was not just his mom, but a mom to lots of kids in cub scouts and the neighborhood. She was an amazing role model for young boys and Doug learned this early and spent his life helping others. I do wish I could spend time with him now and enjoy the stories of his time in the Marines and certainly the many years after. Doug, you were always a friend through thick and thin and I thank you for that. I'm sure you're scouting out the neighborhood in heaven now and trying to figure out your next plan for helping those in need. Be good dear friend. You will be missed.
