    Carla, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at the passing of your father. I worked for your father in the Traffic Department of Keystone Steel back in 1967 and a few years after. Your Father was always a kind and humble person and a great teacher. I will always remember learning about traffic management from him. My condolences for your loss.

    Carla, daughters have a special relationship with their daddy’s
    when they are lucky enough to have good ones like we did. You did
    everything that could be done to care for him and he knew that.
    My heart is with you, my friend.
