Rest in peace my friend! I will always remember all the great times we had at the mill. I enjoyed having you visit me everyday just to see what was up. You finally got the ultimate retirement from the mill Dude……only wish I could have seen & talked with you before you left us. You are gone from us way to soon, but you will never be forgotten.
