    I have very fond memories of Doug and Shirley on Cambridge Street when I was growing up across the street at #31. Doug was the first person to recognize I had a “strange gait” and my flat feet. I fondly remember Shirley making cold drinks in the summer and I believe I might have even child sat with their first born. Doug always had a great smile and I remember him fondly.
