Goodbye Don Lemmon

For the last year and a bit I have been following Don Lemmon's Know How and am fitter and healthier than I have ever been in the last 30 odd years. The personal touch and generous advice that Don gave made Know How far more than just another diet and, through his message board, I got to share some of Don's other interests; Nutrition, writing and music. I was fortunate to help edit and proof-read a novel he was working on that was just about to be published and from that he asked me to work on another book based on his early life called 'Newton Falls Ohio 44444' - and two months in we have been having a great time and churning out a couple of chapters a week.

This morning I woke to hear that Don was tragically killed in a car accident yesterday morning leaving behind a wife and daughter whom he loved dearly.

I myself am gutted by the news and cannot even begin to understand how Asia and Catalina must be feeling.

I wanted this blog to be a way of saying how sorry I am at the news, how much I'll miss working with Don and to thank him for the help, advice and encouragement he has given me over the last year or so.

He will be sorely missed.
