Judy, so sorry to hear about your loss. I know the past few years have been very difficult for you
Its a terrible illness for those who have it and for those who are left behind. The older we get the more important it is to have your spouse by your side. Although I never met your husband, he sounded like a wonderful caring individul from the few comments you made about him in my presence. This has certainly been verified by other comments on this site. Please accept my sincere condolences

Mr. Chubbs hired me in 1982 at the College of Fisheries to work in the Library initially. In later years I worked directly for/with Doug at the Marine Institute. He was a lovely boss. Always pleasant and I would like to reiterate Margo’s comment that “Doug was a true gentleman”. I am grateful to Doug for giving me my start at the College of Fisheries/Marine Institute which lasted 30 years! My sincerest condolences on his passing.
