Hi Jenny, I'm so sorry for your loss. Doug and his family lived in Oliver Springs, Tennessee, in his younger years. We were the best of friends. His mother and father were great. Throughout the years, we would call each other on our birthdays. We worked together for a while. I can still remember going to political rallies during his college Years. My prayers to you and your family. He will be missed.
