Rhonda and Bill, So sorry to hear about your Dad. My Dad Oriville and your Dad were good friends back when we were growing up! You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Bob was so funny. I went for an "interview " with him to do his books. I was dressed nicely in his grubby welding shop and after we talked he said, "Ya know...ya didn't have to dress up to interview me. I was told I had to hire you or find a new accountant." Bob didn't like to do paperwork lol! Lordy I loved that guy!
