Dear Don,

I have always enjoyed reading your articles and a large part of the newspaper will not be the same without you. You have reminded me that, while I boast of growing up in Palo Alto, as soon as I turned 18 and had graduated high school, my first apartment was on Latham Street, then Rich Street, then . . . needless to say, I spent much of my 20s in Mountain View. I sure do miss the days of living it up in a $300 a month one bedroom apartment. Don, I have a feeling, like Jay Thorwaldson, you'll be back in the newspaper business after you retire from healthcare. Take care, thank you for the good reading and have fun at El Camino Hospital.
