I never met him.
But, a couple of years ago, when I produced The Classic Wargamer's Journal, I received a personal hand-written letter from him congratulating me, and encouraging my efforts, and saying how pleased he was to receive the journal.
It's correspondence I will treasure.
You know who I'm talking about of course.
All any of us can wish for is to live a life that is significant.
And the legacy we leave is testimony enough to that.
Do not mourn that Don Featherstone has passed away.
Do not mourn his death.
Celebrate his life.
And give thanks for his significant legacy.
Paint a figure. Read one of his books. Have a game. Or simply raise a glass.
That's what Don would have done; I'm sure of it.
