Was very sad to have heard the news of Doug's passing. Mona and I have such good memories of seeing Doug at recent class reunions, while mine extend back to our high school days at PHS.

He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Thelma and the rest of her family and the Ratcliff family.
