    Sincere condolences to Don's family. He was a lovely, caring person. His friendly personality and smile will be missed by all on F8I. We were fortunate to have him as part of the Figure Eight Island "family" for such a long time.

    I write this w/a heavy heart. Tim & I were shocked & saddened to learn the tragic news. Don was a wonderful person & we know that you & your family have suffered a great loss. Tim & I always looked forward to pulling up to the gatehouse, either on bike or in car. Don would always ask us how far we rode (even if we biked 80 miles that day he would say "I expect better next time") or we'd discuss our Ohio State Buckeyes. He certainly did love his buckeyes !!! Don will be sorely missed. Please except our sincere condolences & know your grief is shared by many.
