Komodo will continue as a partnership between me and Mark Lefler, with Mary Dailey receiving an equal share of the proceeds. I'm in the hospital myself now, but I should be going home tomorrow with no further trouble expected.

Don gave a lasting gift of remembrance to the computer chess community.

I believe that we are born into death-that is to say, everything that is born in this reality-dies. But, I strongly believe that we die into an ever lasting life.

May Don's Spirit remain strong and carry him into ever lasting life.

Please tell him that we have all loved his company, wisdom, and wit, and of course his love and passion for everything he invested himself into.

In fact, scratch that. Just tell him we love him.

I can imagine you're chuckling at people talking about you in the past tense before you're dead!
