Dear Carolyn, so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. I have missed seeing the two of you. It Was always a pleasure to work with and in later years occasionally run in to you and Don. I will always remember his help with moving the house in Colerain and the various other projects we worked on. I will be out of town this Friday and Saturday but know that I am thinking of you, and both of you will be in my prayers.
