Arizona has lost another icon, and I lost a good friend. Yesterday afternoon, I received back-to-back calls from friends and colleagues from Tucson to inform me that Don Diamond had passed away. After 91 years on the planet, I was sad to hear that Don was no longer with us. Don was a mentor and a friend when I founded HighGround 23 years ago. He became a client, introduced me to many lifelong friends, and was a blessing in my life.
Shalom, my friend, for a life well-lived. Uncle Don will be missed.
