I have known Don for a number of years. We shot trap together at New Holland. Most of the time I shot at station 1 and he was down at station 5. After the first round we changed positions and Don walked up to station one right behind me. When he got to me he would always say "How are you doing George." It didn't matter if we had talked before we starting shooting or not. I'll miss that simple recognition. George
