So sorry for Your loss. I worked with Doug my whole time I worked at Citibus. One time when I had just started at Citibus, I met Tanya. She boarded my bus on Rockingham, She said , "I,m Tanya Matthiae and My Dad is a Bus Driver and I ride for Free". I said ,"Yes Ma'am". She was 7 years old. To this day it still makes me chuckle. I told Doug about it and He just smiled.
