The last time I saw Don, he was in Homestead park in the springtime, admiring the cherry blossoms. He was the first person from the department I’d seen since the beginning of the lockdown in 2020 and it was lovely to chat. He said hello to my daughter and we wished each other well.
I’d drop by his office and we’d chat about foraging around York and the Clifton Backies. I remember when he was trying to track down a particularly rare apple breed and we searched for the name high and low…I wonder if he ever figured it out.
