I'm so sorry for your loss! Reading the Encyclopedia Brown books with my father are some of my favorite childhood memories. I always thought he was brilliant for figuring them out every time!! May God Bless you & strengthen you during this time of sorrow.

My deepest sympathy to the Sobol family. I have sweet childhood memories of playing in your yard on Mindello and knowing we had to be somewhat quiet because Mr. Sobol was inside writing.
I'd like to share an experience that I had about 3 years ago. In the midst of some dramatic life changes I found myself visiting a toy store in the small town of Whitefish, Montana. The toy store had just one rack of books and there was a single Encyclopedia Brown book. I flipped through it and there was The Case of the Murder Man where Carole and Marla Kenin were going to tap dance. It was a wonderful moment for me.
I hope your wonderful memories help during this tough time.

I have so many found memories of growing up with your family...swimming in the pool, etc. I'll always remember the challenge Don proposed to me to come up with a twist for Encyclopedia Brown. What a great way to ignite a childs imagination!
My deepest sympathy to the entire family. The world was a better place because of Don.

I didn't like to read either, but thanks to Don I can read a whole lot better. I really did enjoy all of these "Encyclopedia Brown" books and they were very interesting to read. I deeply send my prayers and condolences to you and your family.

I was best friends with Glen Sobol in high school, where I came to know and love the Sobol family. His dad, Don, was so important in Glen's life. Now that Donald has passed on, my thoughts and prayers are now with them. With deep condolences on the behalf of me and countless others, we pray for you and that you may find comfort knowing he will always be with you.

When I first met my husband in January of 1970, he and Don were already friends.
Antique cars were of interest to both of them. Don would drive around in his 1930 Model A Ford, and my husband would help to maintain it. That car now lives in our garage. Though we haven't seen Don in many years, he will be missed. Memories of Don, Rosie and the children will remain in our hearts.
Our deepest sympathy to all Dons family.

On the staff of the Univ of Miami Library, I was fortunate enough to know Don personally. He was a charming & friendly man and a frequent visitor to our library, where we assigned him his own study/research carrel in the bookstacks. He was also generous with his personal time, serving on the Board of Directors of our Friends of the Library organization.
My personal condolences to all the Sobols.
