This is the latest bit of news released today by Don’s best friend of 30+ years, Paul Pape.
Update 8/28/08. 3:23 PM.
Steady as “he” goes. Don continues to improve and stabilize. The
optimism for his recovery grows by the hour. While there is the need
for a lot of caution still, the relief and sense of hope is palpable.
He is slowly but surely making his way.
Nita and the rest of Don’s family continue to feel humbled and touched
by your support and kindness. Nita heard some of the Audio Get Well
Cards already posted this morning, as did Don’s daughter Christine and
other members of his family. They are just awestruck by your kindness.
A huge thanks should go to Rick Party, whose Voiceover Universe has
brought a sense of family to the Voiceover World in a way perhaps
never seen (or heard) before. For a business as competitive as ours,
you would not know it at this particular moment. All such notions have
been cast aside for the concern of one terrific individual. John
Taylor had the idea for the audio get well messages and what a great
idea it was. He has jumped in with both feet to assemble and edit all
the mp3’s that have been coming in and believe me, there are many that
you haven’t even heard yet…many! Feel free to keep sending them
because as far as I know, there’s no set limit on prayers and good
thoughts. John and Rick have been gathering messages from all over the
world and when Don hears them, I think he will be speechless..which
for him is a most unusual thing. Thanks also to My Business mgmt
direct, Norman Lee and, most especially, to each and every one of you
in “the Universe” and elsewhere who have taken time out of your life
to express your feelings or record a message for Don.
All the best,
Keep praying. I certainly am. And if you want to send an MP3 file with your best wishes for Don, email them to me and I’ll pass them along to John Taylor.
