I am saddened to hear about Doug. I have worked with him through the years and gotten to know him personally and can say there is no better person. He was full of charismatic opinions, and stories. He liked to joke around. But Doug had a big heart. If you needed his help he was there. We have lost a great man. You will be missed. Rest in peace.
