My condolences to you all. I worked with Hooter @ Haynes and boy, the fun we had over the years. Golfing, ND football games, the K of C, Technology parties and several "hot spots" around town. I always appreciated Joe's upbeat attitude & sense of humor on a daily basis. This may seem weird but I admired your Dad's perfect penmanship too. Rest in Peace my Friend. Mark B.
