The event was a wonderful celebration of Doug's personal (ski) and remarkable professional career. Tales were shared, with the laughter and tears that accompanied them. Tyson presented a slide show of skiing with Doug, and as if on cue, snowfall began falling in earnest halfway through the celebration. I think that it was cathartic for all who attended.

I guess we may want to file this under the "it's a small world department", but I just found out that Doug Green attended and graduated from the same small high school in Massachusetts that I attended. Our times did not overlap (I'm older), so I never knew him. I realized this yesterday when I received the latest alumni magazine and there was a long obituary on Doug. As I started to read the obituary, I realized that this was Admin's friend who was killed this past Winter in the avalanche in the Utah back country and is the subject of this thread. The obituary mentioned that he was a very avid skier, even in high school. He was an outstanding student, receiving the award at graduation as the top student, academically, in the school. He then went on to Dartmouth and UVM medical school. Everyone who knew him or worked with him extolled his virtues both as a physician and as a human being.

I will try to post the link to the obituary when it is available online.

Please do, I'd like to see it.

By yet another coincidence, just yesterday Doug's ski was found at the toe of the debris pile in BCC.
