Doug, We never meet in person but had some good talks on the phone these past eleven years. Playing fiddle or just sharing your stories about riding freight trains. You made me feel welcome into the family and you helped me with the most important decision of my life, marrying your sister Laurie. I will always remember you and I picture you now playing a Duet with your mom on piano " In the Sweet by and by we shall meet on that beatiful shore " May God bless you and keep you. Buzz
