I remember Donald as we went to Wyoming School together and I have looked back in a grade school memories book and I have a picture of Don and I listed him as the shyest boy in our class.  I didn't really connect with him in high school but I do remember him as a very sweet guy.  Sorry to hear of his passing.

Don was in my kindergarten class at South Mountain before he moved over to Wyoming, a good guy.
