Donald "Don" Ditullio was my former supervisor at Dyonics in Andover Massachusetts for 5 1/2 years. He taught me so much about the proper inspections and protocols for Quality Control of precision Medical Devices there, and all about the F.D.A. "Good Manufacturing Practices" to assure the quality and fitness for use of many diverse devices there. Here was a man whose life was dedicated to the pioneering research support that brought us many of todays radically less invasive surgical procedures that speed recovery and minimize the chances of getting secondary infections and additional complications for countless numbers of people who had or who will have these blessed surgical interventions... Even myself, as I have had a few surgeries with this type of equipment like the type we used to inspect together for so long, which enabled me to walk again, after 3 1/2 years and 3 very special procedures, including 1 research clinical trial procedure which was a total success in restoring my own mobility. I can't thank people like Don enough for having been phenominal human beings who had great purpose in helping humanity so much. I salute him and thank him sincerely for being the wonderful man he was. I will never forget you Don, and as I live and breathe I will always tell your story to all present when I hear anyone discussing 9-11-2001. That is my solemn promise to you, Don... To never let you be forgotten. Osama Bin Laden has met his end and stopped being a threat now, as of this week, and I thank almighty God that he cannot personally hurt any of your fellow Americans himself now. Rest In Peace, dear friend Don, AMEN!!!
