For six days, many of Don Ennis' 1,236 Facebook friends were a little confused. The ABC News producer started a countdown on his profile, hinting at a big change to come, posting videos of Sam Cooke singing "A Change Is Gonna Come," and Aretha Franklin and Luther Vandross covering Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come."

"You better not be planning to kill yourself, Ennis!" commented one friend. When May 3 arrived, Don Ennis was gone. Dawn Ennis had taken his place.
