Dione and Lenny and family, you are all in our thoughts and prayers today. Doug was a wonderful man who will be missed by all of us.

We were honored to help remember Doug's love of bicycle riding by making a contribution in his name to the Active Transportation Alliance. What a fitting tribute to a very special man.

If this was the man I saw riding his bike every week day, down 191st street, then I am so very sorry. I don't know how to find out for sure but even if he is not I am very sorry for your loss. I would see a man riding his bike- what I assumed was to work-every morning, ever so carefully along 191st street. Rain or snow- it didn't matter. He just became part of my daily routine. No matter what, I am sorry for your loss.
