    Scott, I have probably already told you this but here goes. I called your dad years ago to rent a van. He was like you are one of my customers aren’t you? I said well yes have bought at least one from you. He said just tell me when you want one. I told him it was a trip to Florida . Ladies I worked with all wanted to go to Florida together and we would rent it. Nothing doing , he said come pick it up and sure enough day I wanted it he had it ready for me. I will never forget what a kind and generous man he was. Sorry for your loss.
