You Never Grew Old

Don,
Today would have been your 78th birthday, but you'll always be 24 in my mind. Whenever I'm wrestling with a question or dilemma, I ask myself not,"What would Don have said?" but, rather, "What would Don have asked me to think about?" So, even though I've lived much longer than you ever had the chance to, you're still teaching me. I love you.
