Mr. Douglass had a huge influence on my life. I grew up with his son Will, and the Douglass family was always very warm and welcoming. Mr. Douglass was always friendly and always had a good story to tell. He filled any room that he was in, and naturally commanded respect. Mr. Douglass and my father have been friends since the late 1950s and the two of them have always been my role models. I went on to be a lawyer largely because I wanted to be like Mr. Douglass. My first job in law was as his law clerk. I recall very clearly that at a critical moment during my first trial with him, he turned to me and said loudly, "Lindsey, give me that document!" I didn't know what he was talking about, and so I responded, "What document?" Everyone laughed, including Mr. Douglass. I thought that I was going to be fired. Instead, he teased me about it endlessly thereafter. In his kind way, he gave me a good lesson that I never forgot. That's the way I remember him, a very positive influence throughout. I've since moved away from Tallahassee, but his influence on my life has always been large. The last time I saw him, he wished me well as I had just opened my own law office in Manhattan. It never would have happened without him. I am so sad that he is no longer with us. My thoughts and prayers are with his beautiful family.

Dexter Douglass gave lawyers a good name. He was the quintessential wise man, with a sense of humor and a clear eye.

I'm very sorry about Mr. Douglass's passing. He was a wonderful man and grandather. I will never forget going to one of his cattle auctions!
