    Sharon, Jennifer and Dan, We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Doug. I have so many found memories of you all growing up including the time Doug caught me singing (or attempting to) karaoke at your house in Lake Holiday. I can still remember the look on his face when he stood in the stairways listening and how embarrassed I was to have been caught by my friend’s older brother. He signed my yearbook that year encouraging me to invest in some singing lessons. Stay strong.
