Sue and Bob, sorry to hear of your Dads passing. I enjoyed working for him and with him for may years in the Logistics Dept. He was always thoughtfull, caring and easy to work with. He was part of the our Monday golf group and I missed him when he could no longer attend. I feel fortunate to have been in his presence.
