When I discovered Facebook, and then a few years later the Coronado ‘66 reunion site(thanks Teddi!), I was so happy. I loved Coronado and everything about it. I was devastated to have to leave after 9th grade and thought of it, and my classmates, often. You see, it’s different to be the one leaving - and having no choice in the matter - than to be the one lucky enough to stay and carry on.

When I reappeared many decades later, at the beginning only two of my former classmates reached out to me via messager. Don was one of them. Don and I had several online conversations periodically over the years. He told me he had been sick for a long time and that it had come back. He was so brave and maintained his sense of humor throughout. He adored his wife and family and it was lovely to hear him talk about them. Don encouraged me to push through my shyness and send “friend” requests on FB in hopes of reconnecting with other Coronado classmates so that we could catch up. I appreciate those who accepted and thank him so much for nudging me along. 

Don, you were such a good man. I will miss your humor and friendship. My heart goes out to your wife and family.
