I have many memories of times gone by when I remember my brother Doug. When I was about 10 years old Doug and his twin Ken were about 15 years of age. Our mother seemed to be plagued with various medical problems and would often be hospitalized. My younger brother Harvey was only 6 years old and our oldest brother Wes was out of town working. Guess who had to was the dishes, sweep the floor, feed the dog, weed the garden, etc, etc. Doug and Ken would beat the can off me if I didn’t comply. I guess that’s why Dad bought some boxing gloves and built a ring complete with binder twine ropes. Being red-headed and the temper that goes along with that, I invited them to step into the ring with me. Boy was that a mistake, Doug always won , however I found Ken’s Achilles heel and if I could hit him once in the nose, it would bleed and he would quit beating on me. Our mother bought cod liver oil capsules to have during the winter months. Doug, and Ken thought it great fun to chase me around the house, squirting the pin pricked capsules at me . The smell was awful and when Dad came home for supper, guess Who got blamed?. I got back at Doug one time when I placed a little green grass snake in his water glass beside his bed. That sure got a rise out of him. Doug and I loved to go hunting together and we were usually successful. He called me his lucky charm. I could go on and on with many more stories and memories of my big brother Doug. I loved the guy a lot and I will miss the guy with the big laugh. My sincere condolences go out to Rose and the great family they raised. Rest peacefully Doug.
