 d with weekly visits from Doug. As Eucharist Minister, he brought me and several others the wonderful spiritual gift of Jesus. He also shared so much friendship and knowledge and good will. We had many things in common, including years of teaching on the Wind River Indian Reservation. My prayers are with his soul and with his family and friends. May Doug's soul rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him.
