It sure was strange coming to work on Thanksgiving morning and not seeing Doug.....he will be missed sorely by all of us at Huckleberry Retirement. Every day he had a story to tell about the news, Special Olympics, or one of the seemingly endless list of people he knew! He always made sure I had all my "stuff" with me before I left work-water bottle? Glasses? Keys-car and house? "got your sweater, coat, boots"? I hadn't realized how deeply he had become entrenched into my every day. You drove me nuts sometimes, Doug! But I will miss you much and never forget you. Love, Jessica

We first met Doug when we started building rental units near his home. What was there not to like about Doug? Our subcontractors really appreciated his positive outlook and his helpfulness. Our tenants soon realized Doug kept a keen eye on the neighborhood--he was ultimately trustworthy. He confidently gave his opinion on many and varied subjects. He finally got my husband to wear a bike helmet, and explained to me the importance of following recycling rules. He always wanted to help out, but never wanted pay for little odd jobs; once in awhile we could coax him into joining us for lunch at Serve-a-Burger, or going shopping for some warm top and sweat pants. We had just visited with Doug a few days before he passed away. Though our hearts are heavy knowing he will not be moseying over from his home to greet us or offer to help in some way, we feel such gratitude that we had Doug in our lives. Our sympathy to Gwynethe and family for their loss. We love the great capture of Doug and the parakeet.
