Don S. Davis, rest in peace

With tears in my eyes, I pass on the news that is spreading like wildfire all over the internet to those in Stargate SG-1 fandom -- Don S. Davis, perhaps better known as General George Hammond, has died. The report says he passed on the 29th.

Don came to Sacramento a few years ago to attend a convention. I was fortunate enough to have lunch with him with some other fans, and later to just stand around and talk with him before we were all leaving. He was a nice, sincere, interesting, entertaining, caring, and friendly person. He generated warmth. We all just couldn't wait to talk with him and get to know him better.

Don has performed in numerous TV shows and movies. Even if you don't know his name and never watched SG-1, I guarantee you've seen him. Check out his credits at the imdb.

Please take a moment and pause to remember a very sweet man.

Thanks, Don. I already miss you!
