Several years ago Don worked with me on a project. I was having a bad day. On returning from lunch, Don and another co-worker brought me a Snickers Bar and said, " We know you haven't been yourself today." We all got a laugh and it changed my day.
Dr. Don is a truly great man. I'll miss our friendship.
Rest in Peace, Brother Don ! I'll catch you on the other side.
