For Donald...

Your words from the heart and
their ink from the soul.

This is for you Donald.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

His stories are truly spell binding, and interesting. I have spent many sleepless nights in his different stories, and capers and worlds.

I was very saddened to hear of his death; he was a legend when I was at Stanford, and I have followed him for most of my life.

May he rest in peace, and my his wonderful works continue for as long as he would have wished.

A great writer. I never knew him. especially enjoyed his Dortmumder stories. I've read most of them. will seek out his other works and devour them as well. sort of like a rare cache of gems, his stories. I was very saddened at hearing of his passing.

thank you for all the wonderful stories Don.

Donald was my favorite author. I have been reading and enjoying his work since the early 70's. When I was stationed in a lonely post in Korea in 1978, I spent many a night reading his books, thanks to the base library that had quite a few of his books. It made my one year tour much more enjoyable. My condolences to his wife and family. it's a great loss.
