I went all thru school with Doug; Irving, Woodrow and Central.  He was a really nice guy.  Haven't seen him in the years since graduation.  RIP Doug.

Doug and I spent time shooting basketball at the hoop in the backyard of our house on Court Street.  Life was simple back then shooting hoops and riding bikes.  Loved every minute of it.
