I'm so sorry to hear of Kyle's passing. I remember him when he was at Unilever. One day coming back from lunch my muffler came loose coming down the hill in back of Unilever. I could only go forward, luckily I found a parking space I could pull in. Later that afternoon Kyle came to me and told me he tied the muffler up so I could drive the car some where to be fixed. The short time I knew him he was pleasant to work with.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.
