Len hired me for Account Management here in Birmingham in 1980. He was always very supportive of me and my work. Of course it helped that I had two girls that would play soccer for the American Soccer Club. That was one of the first things he asked of me. Len wanted me to bring my girls to Frank Hughes soccer practice because the American Soccer Club was starting a girls team. Len was always pushing me, in a nice way, to be better.

I enjoyed my years working for Len and I considered him and his family friends of my family. May God Bless the Widra family during this time.
