Melissa - loss is hard, but the loss of a father is particularly so. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Belinda C.
I worked at Case the same time T.C. worked there. I worked on the 580 assembly line and he was such fun and when he would stop by my station and always tried to help me, like put in a cotter pin when I wasn't ready for it to be installed. LOL. He and I always shared that story each time we see each other during the day at work or after retirement. We laughed and enjoyed each other while working. So sad to hear of his passing and my sympathy to all of the family. God finally got a good guy up in heaven. Joe Stevens
