    I’m so sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. I still remember the good times we had square dancing in his parent’s garage.

    Bill, So sorry for the loss if your brother. This brought back the memory of when I worked for your company and my uncle passed and your concern was to see if I needed to travel to Kentucky to be with my mother in the time of her loss. That meant so very much to me. My prayers go out to you and your family in this time of loss. A past employee from 2000 to 2002.
