AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

Dear Kevin and Connie, Kathy and Wayne,
So sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. He led a long and full life. And it is difficult to believe that he is no longer with us after all these years. And hard to believe that he was at NGB for 35 years. I do not know of anyone who worked until they were 100 years old that is amazing.
Sorry I am unable to share in his services but my thoughts are with you all. Sending big hugs to everyone. Lee Weed
