The real Doug Thompson? I arrived...

>.. at the funeral home for Shan's visitation last evening, and in the front hall a flower arrangement stopped me in my tracks. Doug's turned wood sun hat exactly like Shan's lay atop a basket of cut flowers, just as though she had come in from her garden and placed it there! I know Doug only as the toolmaker, and this totally unexpected act of gentle humanity instantly brought tears to my eyes, and I'm crying again now as I sit here. Doug, I don't have a clue how you accomplished this fete, but I am forever in your debt, and I thank you sir.
