I spoke with Don's sister. Don's nieces, nephew and she are taking it hard. She had planned to fly to Connecticut visit him this fall.
She told me Don's final wish was to be cremated and have his ashes scattered in a forgotten old graveyard he had discovered on his rambles. I think it dates to Colonial times, the 1600s-1700s.
Paul, Don would be very pleased and proud to have a compilation of his writings put together. His sister agrees that he'd love it.
I miss Supe very much, but I bet he's having a swell time learning the answers to all of History's mysteries - from Jack the Ripper to the American Civil War to the history of Baseball. He's probably already pounding away on his typewriter, excited that he got the big scoop!
