I talked to him on the phone a couple days ago for maybe three minutes, which was probably too long; he’d sounded so much like his old cheerful self when he’d answered, but he seemed to be fading fast. “Don, am I wearing you out?”

“Yes,” he answered honestly.

I understood–I’ve been there, where holding onto a phone in your hospital bed is just…too…it’s so heavy…

And so, if you have a moment, and if it’s something you feel like doing, his blog is at if you want to leave a message.

We’re sending thoughts his way every day. It was good to hear his voice (I called a few days ago as well)

Alison, thanks so much to introducing us all to Don through your blog, and encouraging him to start his own. I’m thinking of him daily –please relay my wishes, if it comes up.

Was thinking of you today…were you in Bethesda in November, 1963? The CBS rebroadcast as it happened is amazingly emotional for those who lived thru it.
