Tony, I am saddened to read about the passing of your dad. I remember meeting him when he was with you years ago on a job you were doing for me. As I am living in Florida now, I will not be able to attend the service, but you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hope business is good for you. God Bless. Will Statom
