Judy Reed asked me to let everyone know that Don passed peacefully away at 8:45 tonight, with Judy and Caitlin holding his hands and his cute little dog Peanut lying by his bed.
I had the honor of meeting Don last week, and he was quite a guy. He was dying and he of course knew it, he was on powerful pain meds and was hooked up to some machinery 24/7, yet he apologized to me for not being good company (!) and he did his best to try and keep his eyes open and be part of any conversations. He was surrounded by love not only from his wife and daughter, but by a large group of close friends who visited the evening I was there and who were clearly deeply moved by his plight.
I know we’re all sad at Don’s passing, but I’m also relieved that he’s no longer suffering. Rest in peace, my friend.
