Most of you won’t know this yet but Don has been suffering/fighting the big “C” for a while.
He is now in Hospice at the Hospital and the cancer has spread to his brain.
Don has been a great influence to me and was responsible for getting me started in Segmenting, which I really enjoy.
My thoughts and prayers go to Don, Kathy and the Girls.
God Bless.

OMG, Bob. Don is one of my first few Buddies. He introduced me to you. I didn’t know that. I’m really, really sad now. Don is one of those Buddies, who, right from my first meeting, I thought, If ever I’m in his neck of the woods….. I haven’t known him for nearly as long as you have, but, I’ve been very fond of him, from the moment we met (in the cyberworld).
