I will miss you Doug and I will think of you often. I enjoyed knowing you and sharing dreams with you. We will forever be bound together in those times and I look forward to seeing to being with you one day as time transpires. Your memory will forever be tied to the fossils you are responsible for within the collection. Each one a lasting memory of our times together. Love to you and your family and may God's grace be upon them. I wish you were still here. Love, Dave
