To the Burgeson family:
Very sorry to hear of Don's passing. I worked with Don for a few years at the Forensic Unit of Warren State Hospital. He had retired before I started at the Unit, but had returned as an annuitant. He kept me entertained with stories of his early days at the hospital, and also when he worked on the building of the Kinzua Dam. I will cherish those memories and am glad I got to work with him.
