Farewell Don Koue

My brother-in-law, Don Koue, husband of my sister Susan and father of my niece Camille, died yesterday morning, May 12th, at six in the morning. He'd been in hospice for a month. I talked with him recently. His hospital bed was sitting in front of their Oakland Hills picture window overlooking the Bay Area. He said he had that great view, wonderful music, good care, and Susan and Camille, and felt like he was the most fortunate person in the world.  He was assistant head of PR for UC Berkeley for years. He was in his eighties.Good man, smart as heck. A really good artist and writer. - DC
