Donald James, April 24, 1944 - April 16, 2009

We just received a phone call telling us that Donnie Jay passed away in his sleep last night after a long illness. I'm numb.

My relationship with Donnie revolved around To Do Productions, his theatre company, in which he allowed me to participate. It was a rollicking second childhood, and, like one's first, over too soon.

God bless you and keep you, Donnie.

Take a bow, y'old queen!


  1. Oh my goodness.... I am in absolute shock. How sad! I will miss him dearly. Donnie Jay was one of the sweetest people I've ever known. Please let me know about the services...

  2. I'm so, so sorry. Your kind affection for him has been obvious here. I hope his friends and family somehow find comfort. I'm just really sorry.
