Jump ahead. One of my first jobs was working part-time at the Sharon Package Store for Don Carberry. While I only worked for Don a short while (he sold it to Jack Murtagh) and I worked for Jack as well, after a bit. Don was the best. I developed a great admiration for him then. Thirty-eight years later, I still have one. Don is dad to my childhood classmate Pete, and dad to my neighbor Donna, who lives up the street just 3 doors.. Both are great people. Beth, Don's wife, was really great people. Sadly, she is no-longer here for us to enjoy, but her memories live on with all of us who knew her.
I told you all the above to tell you this one thing...... Getting a picture of Don is a hard thing now days, but I caught him today, as he stopped in for his "Lucky for Life ticket". Knowing Don, I consider that I have already won "Lucky for Life"....no money, just a great friend.

Thanks Cat for catching the door for him! Great timing!
