    Bill and Kathy, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Your Dad was a wonderful man. I was privileged to have had an opportunity to work for him at Gill’s Shell, and to have benefited from his kindness, wisdom, and instruction. I have fond memories of those days. I wish you and your families all the best. My deepest condolences. Dave D.
