Doug was the Best Man I have ever known! He took a Thug from the inner city and loved all the hate out of my heart. He taught me how to cook, do laundry, clean. How to camp, change my own car tire, and to fish. Doug showed a Very dysfunctional girl how to be a functional young lady. He believed in Working Hard and playing harder. I AM a better person for loving him. I know I will see you again.
