Doug for a short time lived next door. I remember at times he was leaving for work as I went for the morning paper. He was always willing to stop for a friendly discussion. A few years ago he and his crew painted our house. He worked as hard as any of them but always had time for you. I learned that was a regular trait.
Ron we cannot imagine the loss of a child. To say our thoughts and prayers are with you and Karen just does not seem to be enough. We are here for you.
Love pat and cliff
