    Doug was the most naturally good person I ever met. I think everyone who met him could feel that. I don't know of a higher compliment I could say about him or anyone.

    Doug was my best friend. We raised our girls together from the time that they were born. Many camping trips and holidays spent as one big family. I posted a picture of one where he made a bow and arrow for the girls. It would actually stick in a tree.

    Doug was such a wonderful person. I transitioned a project to Doug about 25 years ago, and still remember his professionalism and friendliness. Later, he harvested some firewood from my yard; he was very conscious of our natural resources. He added so...  more
