Dear Tod and Bonnie,
So sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Our thought and prayer go out to you and your family.

With the co-incidence of last name, our fathers sharing the same first name, and living in the same neighborhood, we on occasion would redirect calls to your home! On an uncanny co-incident, we just lost my dad James A. Scott on July 28th too.....perhaps this time it was a conference call!

Hope you are all well!
