Thanks for the call Benet. No way to list all the fond memories of this guy, I worked with him for many years. Actually I worked for him, but he never treated me that way. One of the toughest things I ever did was go to Buddy and resign when I decided to take a different job. Going to work for a customer made it easier since Buddy became my vendor!

If heaven is air conditioned, I'm sure Buddy is busy redesigning it!
