I was a partner at Rosewood until I retired in May 2016. Rox and Debbie I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Woods over some 40 plus years ago. I always remember him coming by with Rotary for the "Shots Across Texas". I always enjoyed visiting with him. I can say he was a friend to Rosewood.
God bless you both.
