I remember Doug Olson. Sometimes I would get him confused in my adolescent mind with "Jimmy Olson" in the Superman Comics which I was accused of reading in class at Garner. Doug wasn't a pal..but was someone I spoke with occasionally as he was friendly with everyone...even misfits. Doug always had a big grin and an easy, fun-loving manner. Confident and kinda cocky with his ever-smiling face...I see him still today with his sandy hair, black loafers, and ready smile...striding the halls of yesterday...ready for anything.

I was really saddened to read about Doug's passing. He and I had an off again/on again dating "career" - he was a really sweet guy with a vibrant personality but when he got behind the wheel of the car, he LOVED to speed and I had to tell him on a couple of occassions; "Doug! for the love of God slow down and respect your passengers!" (I kind of laugh now when I think I actually said that) If you knew Doug, you knew he was a bit of a rogue but a lovable one at that, and he did as I requested and slowed down. The memories are all we have of those who have "walked on", but the memories are good :)
