Please accept my condolences on the passing of your father and grandfather. I am truly sorry. When he was Plant Manager at Moore Business Forms in Buckhannon, West Virginia, I was his secretary for a few months before he moved on to another position with the company. He was always so very kind. May God comfort you at this time.
