We´ve enjoyed being Marilyn and Doug´s across-the-street-neighbor for over 20 years. We´ll miss seeing Doug out in the yard and coming and going, always with a smile and wave, and often a joke. Mark and I always laughed and wondered which of us would get our Christmas lights put up first. Rest easy Doug and you´re in our thoughts Marilyn, Dennis and family.
