Reminiscences at Doug
Harrington's Memorial Bench
Dedication, May 12, 2007
(Please have your system's sound turned up; some of the speakers' voices are subdued by emotion.)
After Reva, the reminiscences are in random order; no relative "importance" should be inferred from a particular person's place in the following queue -- all loved Doug, and no one's love is more valued than another's.
Please make sure to scroll down to the very bottom of this page -- not everyone who wanted to remember Doug on video was able to, and tribute(s) from afar are being added to the bottom of this page.
