We are deeply saddened about the loss of our friend. Doug was a great caring, generous person. Kim and I had the pleasure of working with him over the last 20 years at the Landrum Antique Mall. We built up a great friendship and he will be greatly missed. He was always willing to help and we appreciated him.

Our children have great memories of their teacher Mr. Morgan at Fairforest. Over the years we would always see him at the antique stores and he would always ask how the kids were doing. I'm sure he impacted many lives through education. Prayers for the family and so sorry for your loss. The Darbys
