For many years Doug sat in front of me in home room.  He always wore a smile :-) -  I can see it clearly right now in my minds eye ....and teased me without mercy .. but always in a gentle manner. Thanks Doug for being a  friend in a difficult time. I wish I woud have told you that earlier... hopefully you knew. Peace
