His loss leaves a hole that cannot be filled, not only in the lute world, but in our minds and hearts.
Funeral arrangements are not yet finalized and I doubt Doug would want anyone to spend money on flowers for him. I do know he was very interested in getting his book into the hands of readers, so, perhaps, buying one and reading it, if you haven't already, is the best way to pay tribute to him.
The LSA will be devoting JLSA, issue 52 to Doug as a festschrift in his memory.
