Dear Jimmy, I am sorry I was out of the country at the time of your Dad's passing. He was very special to me. I have some wonderful pictures of him at his retirement. If you would like me to send them to you, please contact me and I will get them to you. He was a funny guy, and always would come see me before he started work. I will miss him. Patty
