You’re continuing to tell these stories, and as we’re losing our heroes of the old Cape, you’re maintaining that. Everyone should keep an eye on where you are and what you’re speaking about in your different engagements.

(Don’s) scholarship (is) certainly evident. (He is) most knowledgeable about Cape history.
