Since every death diminishes us a little, we grieve -
not so much for the death - but for ourselves.
~ Lynn Carlson
On Saturday, Michael and I returned home from a daytrip to Memphis to find out that two of our friends had passed away within a few hours of each other.
Don Patterson was with Landmark Communications for a long time before his retirement in 2004. He started out with the newspaper division and later with the broadcast division, which is how we met him. He was a great guy, and I'm happy I got to know him through my husband.
Bob Rainey was a sports reporter for my husband at NewsChannel 5 before moving to Minneapolis (WCCO) a few years ago. Bob was a nice guy, pure and simple. I always enjoyed talking with him when I saw him in the newsroom. He was only 46.
