JoAnn and Mark,
I want you to know how much your mother and father contributed to my life many years ago. I was tutored by your mom in geometry and it gave me a fondness for math. Also, a passing grade, I'm sure! Your dad was truly from the old and caring McLean Trucking "family" that help shepherd me in my early years. After summer stays in general office he always left me with..."don't forget us when you graduate". He always kept his word. High caliber were your parents. Also, I'm very sorry about Jeff. He was great to work with in the summers and to know.
All Good News, Bobby Bennett
