  1. BARUCH DAYAN HAEMET!
    So sad that Don has passed away! He was always menschlik and sweet and even tempered. A truly wonderful person.
    Donny’s mother, Leonore, and my mom were at Children’s Hospital at the same time. ( Another person, with whom Donny and I grew up, Phil Michaels, was born during those 4 days – the 7th -11th.
    The three mothers were close friends.)
    Donny, Phil and I had birthday parties together when we were small, went through grammar school and Sunday School together, and Donny and I went to Presidio and GWHS together.
    May his memory be for A BIG BLESSING.
    May his family be comforted by their lived ones and friends.
