I remember Travis well from OH Hutchings. He was a wonderful man that I enjoyed working with during my short assignment at the plant. I hope you and the family are doing well.

Mike I will always remember you when Mom and I walked Mack, our Yorkie and you called him killer every time you saw him. You will be missed but I know you are in a better place. My Mom passed away in February and I know you will be able to see her again.
Our deepest sympathy,

Terry Barker and Family
