It is with a heavy heart that I send my most sincere condolences to Don's family and friends. I worked with Don for almost 5 years at CCI, and what stuck out most about him was how genuine and kind he was. He also had an amazing sense of humor and his presence and energy were always something I was grateful for. May you rest in peace, my friend.
