My heart was truly saddened to hare of Don's passing. He was a wonderful friend and oneof our industries greatest producers. He produced the Goss Brothers last album which was our best project. Also, I worked wit him on "Color Him Father" and was with him the night of the Grammys when it won Record of the Year. He was one of the most kindness and talented men I knew. He will be greatly missed and I will always hold a special place in my heart for him. May his family and friends find comfort and peace during this most difficult time.

He leaves us with great memories and wonderful times!
