  • Hi Norm:

    As Don's best friend of 31 years, I'd like to respond to your comment. No one could be more acutely aware that Don is gone than myself. That goes for anyone else that ever really knew him well, especially his family. Like Michael Jackson (whom you pointed out), there are certain people who manage to achieve legendary status in their time. They didn't necessarily choose to be regarded as such but, as a result, they live on as an example and touchstone for others.

    Don is being remembered as much for the kind of person he was as he is for the talent he possessed. In his case in particular, it's hard to separate the two. If people are not done grieving the man's loss, let alone the loss of his great pipes, what harm does it do? I, myself, go to visit his resting place pretty often and I talk to him. Millions of people the world over do the same thing. Yet I doubt we are under any illusions that he is physically present any longer.

    Where you lost me was when you suggested he stop being featured and that his likeness be taken off the Web - that we just put his legacy aside and make place for something new. He still has a lot to teach VO actors and a great example to set. Sure, someone will come along to take his place one day and be a legend themselves. Don even said that his legacy would probably only outlast his living presence by 15 years or so. He was under no illusions, yet he was also an unfailing mentor and believer in giving back. That's why we built the Don LaFontaine Voice-over Lab at the SAG Foundation's Actors Center in Los Angeles, as a way of not only remembering him but CONTINUING his legacy of giving back in helping to educate VO actors and give them "a voice" in their professional community.

    So, I respectfully ask..what's wrong with letting the guy "live"? He's not hurting anyone and no one is getting hurt by acting like he's still here. His memory is alive and well and doing good deeds. We should all be so lucky in our passing.
  • Norman R Thellmann your a jack ass don is the reason a lot of voice over actors are working his open heart and kindness not like you and he was and still is the best.

    really he's dead get some class ok
