The valet at the Pittsburgh airport rental-car office brings around our white Lincoln Continental and Vince Donnelly raises his eyebrow slyly and says to me, "If I'm going to go, I'm going to go in style." A bit of subversive humor from my dad that I well appreciate. It helps alleviate the shock of how he looks. Prior to this trip, I hadn't seen my dad since I spent Christmas in Vail, Colo., where he and my mother had moved several years ago. What a difference five months can make.

I would give a lot to have known the kind of loving closure experienced by the talented Joe Donnelly and his brave father ('Driving Vince Donnelly,' June 16). I was moved to tears by the author's deft prose and obvious respect for his complex, charismatic 'old man.' I lost my alcoholic Irish dad almost 20 years ago, four years before I got sober. What a wonderful, mystical trip the Donnellys shared together. We should all be so lucky. Harry Shannon Studio City
