  10. Sis, Although I’m pretty sure you don’t remember me, I just learned of Don’s passing yesterday and wanted to share my condolences. Don did some work for both me & my father, most notably painting my 1970 Big Block Chevelle SS back in 1982. He did a stellar job! Don was a perfectionist and never settled for less. I always enjoyed talking to Don; he had a wonderful sense of humor and a taste for adventure. I’m so very sorry to hear of your loss…
