    Sorry to hear about Don. Always sad when one of the former Virginia Streeters pass away. Don was one of the older people who along with Jim Boren, John Crouch, and the late Nikki Vucelik who came to play basketball regularly in my backyard in the 60's. Hopefully those memories stuck with Don thru the years as much as they did me and others who grew up in simpler times. My thoughts and sympathy go out to all of his family and friends
