I met Donald in 1994 and we worked together on many auto related projects with Mercedes-Benz Club. We traveled internationally together a number of times. He was very polite, and I always thought of him as a walking encylopedia. He knew so much and was an expert on so many subjects, locations, procedures, and again cars ---we shared in our love of cars, and could chat for hours about models or makes of vehicles. We both particularly enjoyed Mercedes-Benz and Cadillacs. His Cadillacs, mainly from the late 50's had beautiful chrome and fins. Donald emailed me a pic of the taillamps and fins of a favorite Cadillac that he owned, and he knew that I liked, and I still have that photo. He was an excellent photographer and knew much about cameras, too. Donald helped broker a car deal for me, a classic car that I really treasured. I don't recall him being late for a meeting or commitment. Donald shared some words of wisdom, that I still treasure. I told Teresa, his wife that he adored, that I would have some cottage cheese some time in Donald's honor. We both liked cottage cheese, and I remember Donald usually enjoyed Coke in a bottle. So some time soon, I will have a special time in his honor and enjoy cottage cheese, order a Coke in a bottle and celebrate him. Thank you for being you, Donald. I will always remember you. I am thankful you were in my life. Godspeed Donald.
