    I had the pleasure of working with Don at Belle Meade Plantation. He was a very kind, gentle person who was always helpful to a new worker or visitor. He even took the time to teach me how to do crosswords. I’m sorry for your loss.

    I will miss emailing Don. He was my first friend when I began working at Belle Meade Plantation. We shared a love of books…and he gifted many of his old books to me for my collection and I treasure them!

    I’ll always have the fondest memories of working with Don at BMP’s gift shop on the weekends. What a truly unique and inspiring soul. My most sincere condolences to his family & the many friends who were touched by Don’s companionship over the years.

    I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of such a kind man. I enjoyed working with Don at Belle Meade, and always loved to hear his excited descriptions to the guests, telling them in wonderful detail about the grounds of the plantation. Even my family came to know Don’s kindness through my working with him. He will truly be missed. Rest in peace, friend.

    I still think of Don often when I run across a new opera or beautiful iris in the spring. I still miss him and wish I could chat with him about literature, art or poetry. My well wishes and condolences continue to go out to his family.
