    • I am going to miss my cabin neighbor and friend Doc. Until recently I would marvel at his stamina, working outside for hours maintaining his property and equipment, well into his 80’s. I am sure his loss of independence was a struggle. I pray he is forever young and at peace now in the company of his wife Jean.
