We were just kids back in the late 60’s playing around and they took my arms and legs and held me down and this little pip sqweek shoved a big old bullfrog in my face and I screamed all the way home, lol. I’ll never forget that! But I’m laughing tears thinking about it. It was funny!

Doug attended Woodside Bible Church in Troy. He would greet me with a big hug, an update on his life and an enthusiasm for the gift of another day. I am glad to have known him.
