    Doug is my best life long friend, although in the last few years we always made plans to get together, they were not as often as I liked. Doug you were always there when I needed you. Your memory spanning almost 40 years will always live on with me. To Vi and Jim, please call me if you need me. I am so sorry for your loss, the world lost a great man, I lost a great friend.
