I am so sorry to hear about Don as he was such a wonderful, kindhearted person when I met him in Connecticut. This was such a freak accident and he was much too young to die. My condolences are with sent to his family and may Don rest in peace and be a Guardian Angel over his family now. He sure will be missed dearly by all of us.
