To the Moss Family,

Don was a good friend and outstanding political leader. I always enjoyed working with him to promote good government in Allegheny County, particularly in the Eastern Suburbs with the old (but very successful) "44 Club".

Please accept my deepest condolences.

I will remember Don for his kind, thoughtful words. Years ago when I was still a teenager, he gave me a compass as an allegorical gift for finding my own way through life; it's something that made me feel better and a gesture that I'll always remember.
