Susan, Bill, and family, as a lifelong Greenvillian, I have fond memories of your dad from TV appearances. I admired his intelligence, wit, snd community-minded spirit. My mother died in March at 99. Both lived such rich lives and contributed so much to family and the Greenville community.

Bill: We only learned of his passing after the service, the price of being out of town and out of contact. Fond and treasured memories. Don

I felt like I only knew Doug a short time, but it was a good one - the tennis, meals at Augusta Grill will be specially remembered.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
