    “A life well-lived leaves behind a beautiful legacy.“ -Anon.
    One only needs to look at Dougs lovely family, his Legacy, to realize that this is True.
    Doug’s willingness to be of Selfless Service is also a testament to a life well lived, although one cut far too short.
    God Speed Doug! Blessings, Love & Condolences to all those you leave behind.
