Doug Clapp, a former judge from Maine, retired in 2003. In 2008, he and his wife, Judy, moved to St. Petersburg. He was having progressive difficulties with walking and speaking. His normal, everyday life was becoming more challenging. Speaking in public had been such a joy for him and was becoming a dreaded task. All of this was happening to Doug because he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a progressive neurological disease that affects movement and communication.
