We lost one of our very special patients recently—Don Rickles —who was a beloved patient, friend and benefactor. Although he was known as an “insult” comic he was the singularly kindest man I have ever known.  Off stage, he made me laugh and always feel loved and valued.  He would, however, admonish me to “leave the jokes to him” if I joked back. I miss him very much. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. If you would like to donate in honor of Don Rickles and his memory here at WCD, please fill out the envelope and write “Don Rickles” on the in memory line. We will share your gift by sending a notification letter to his wife Barbara and family in your honor.
