I was real sorry to learn of Don Miles' death.
Don was a plasterer who experimented
constantly with acrylic additives in portland cement.
Don used to call and e-mail me from Seattle
promoting Milestone products.
Don was a great influence on our work here
in Virginia. Using acrylic additives in portland
cement has improved the quality of our product

I went to Seattle to for a workshop for
Milestone products, and to visit Don Latimer.
