Don Sausser: Lucky to Know Ace Walden for 35 Years

Jesse Tinsley/Spokesman-Review

I have been lucky enough to know Ace for about 35 years and we now live in the apartment below him in the Lake Tower Aps. I take him to NIC Booster Club luncheons at the Resort each Tuesday noon while Bob Bemis (of Diamond Match fame, and Gpa of the famous Bemis twins) takes him to Rotary each Friday. While he uses a walker to get around the best thing is that he has no pain and his mind is keen. We should all be so lucky. It has been our pleasure to have known him so long. Unfortunately, we used poor trip planning and missed his party.

DFO: Hey, Don, can you set up a Huckleberries Gone Wireless interview for me with Ace Walden in a coupla weeks. If/when I return from vacation, I'd love to interview him. Okay?
