Doogie Weaver

Today MacDougal (Doogie) Weaver, age 13 and a half, crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was a gentle soul who loved everyone he met.


This was a hard-earned trait because he came to Los Alamos more than nine years ago from a life where he had apparently been abused. However, the love he got from everyone gave him back his trusting spirit.
