My deepest sympathy, Jeannie, to you and your family. Doug believed in Jack & me way back in the early 70's and that helped us immensely as we started Partners Design. Very appreciative of that. We have fond memories of those times with Doug.

Jeannie, Alex, Jessica & family: I was saddened to hear of Doug's passing. He was a bright, talented, funny and caring guy. I'll always think fondly of the years we worked and laughed together.
