Dear Nina and Amy,
Reading of the sad news of Don's passing filled me with memories. My intro to the Registry of Deeds was by my Dad and my brothers in the early 1960's, and Don was one of the first people I was introduced to. He (and Bob Harrington) became a mentor, a colleague, and a good friend.
We shared in a friendly group of title examiners and lawyers and other denizens of the Registry, who would frequently dine out at Durgin Park, where Joe Gaffney was a Maitre D, and would enjoy the story telling and jokes and horrendous titles we were each working on.
Later on, when the Smith family moved to Arlington, we both became residents on Columbia Rd (tho a pain to get from one section to the other) and were the grateful recipients of clothes from Amy to our daughter Rachal.
Life is indeed filled with memories, and despite my sadness at Don's passing, I feel enriched by knowing him for most of my life, and for the wisdom and kindnesses he imparted to me.
Rest in peace my Friend.

May the God of all comfort strengthen your entire family, and may you also be comforted by the scripture found at Psalms 116:15
