So saddened to hear of Doug's passing. Condolences and prayers to Ena and the family at this most difficult time. Fond memories of our times in Burford. I worked with Ena at Burford District High School for many years. You may remember me as Jean Clarkson.

Condolences to family and friends. He is remembered by me as a good man. I was his alter boy way back in the Burford days. He also performed my wedding ceremony. He had an huge singing voice and an even bigger heart.
