I had the privilege to work with Archie while I worked in Terza, Mexico.

I traveled with him a couple of times to Dalton and Leeds, UK and he always was a candid mentor and guide.

I'll never forget the many things he tought on handling business and working with people.

Rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Barfield...I've known Susan since we were 6, and spent many days while growing up at their house. He was such a wonderful dad, and I have great memories of him. Thinking of all of you during this difficult time.
Love,
