Eileen, Eugene, Erica and Elisa - so sorry about the passing of your husband and father. He always had something nice to say. Norby Maska and I worked for Eugene in the 70’s helping to build his houses. We enjoyed working for him very much. I also had the pleasure to travel to rehab at Inspira with him. There was always an interesting conversation. He enjoyed his life.
