I’m so sorry to learn of Don Law’s passing. Don was one of my best friends in Melbourne High School class of 1959 – knew him when he was just Don Grammer. We played baseball together and did a lot of fishing for trout and shrimping at night or early morning in the Indian and Banana Rivers, mostly off the Eau Gallie and Melbourne causeway bridges, sometimes off Mather’s bridge. Don had a sense of humor and always had a joke or two or three or more – loved to get you laughing. As I recall Don went into the Navy following graduation from high school and made a career of it. I believe it was not very long after joining the Navy that he was sent to Vietnam where he spent time on a river boat and earned the nickname of “Gunner” from his expertise in operating the boat’s machine gun. No doubt he saw some bad stuff over there but thankfully, he returned home in good shape. We kind of went our separate ways and lost track of each other. I believe the last time I saw Don was in March of 2010 when my wife, Betty, and I who live in New York State went to Melbourne to visit my son and daughter-in-law then living in Palm Bay. While there I was able to contact Don. He and Judy were gracious enough to invite us over to their home for dinner – shrimp, of course – delicious. As I recall Don had an Irish Setter dog at the time and from what I saw, he sure loved that dog. May God bless and keep you, Don! I am happy to have known you. I’d like to send my sincerest condolences to Don’s family and ask if my memory regarding the events referenced above is not totally accurate to please forgive me!

Don Grammer Law was a lifelong friend. We were school mates in the Melbourne school system, graduating from Melbourne High School together in 1959. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. The last time I saw Don was at our Mel Hi Class of ‘59 reunion last year. Don was among those who got up and spoke, and in Don’s humorous way, he had everyone laughing. Don had a one-of-kind personality people loved. He was a great and old friend. My sincere condolences to his family. Signed Bill Sargent, Melbourne, Fl.
