  1. Dr. Donaldson, you don’t know me but you do know my (late) sister, Lesie McKnight Yates. Congratulations! From what my sister told me of you years ago, you are mathematican to the core!!! It is always good, sometimes to get away from, and then to return to that which is “dear to heart.” Stay blessed.
