goodbye, don

one of the members of our kiwanis club died this morning. i’m still in shock because even though we knew he didn’t have long left, we thought it would be more than two days. don had surgery monday for cancer, which they discovered had spread to his organs and his arteries. the problem was, he had been told before that his cancer wasn’t going to be a big problem for him. yesterday, he was up walking around his hospital room. this morning at 6 he passed away.

i knew don in two ways — from kiwanis and from covering the city’s airport authority board, which he chaired. i thought i’d be seeing him at the next meeting. it just sucks because don was a really great guy, and i’ll really miss him.
