Hi from a fellow WHS Class of '75 member. Doug's name was always synonymous with excellent athletics, and was known to everyone even if we didn't cross the same paths often. My prayers for all of you who were close to him and loved him. May you experience a special kind of peace at Christmas as you reflect on good times.
