Heard about one of your welders being killed in motorcycle accident w/ deer Sunday.
I hope this doesn't put the company to much behind.

With Sympathy,

Thanks for your condolence. This was a real blow to me, Dale Young and I have worked together in one form or another for the past 30 years. He has been by my side like a brother when no one wanted a coal stove and stuck with me. He had welded, installed, delivered, chased steel and cast iron and anything else that needed to be done. There was no job that he would not do or even question about doing. If I did a job, he could do it better. A jack of all trades, and a master of many. This has been a bad week for LLS, but much worse for me. I can't express to you how much he will be missed by everyone at LLS. We would not be where we are today without the likes of Dale.
A great admirer of your talents and friendship.

Sorry for your loss. Dale sounded like a hard working guy that didn't mind getting his hands dirty.

I too am sorry for your loss. A good employee is hard to find. A good friend is much harder. I pray that God will comfort his family and friends.

Very sorry to hear of this.

My condolences to you all and his family.

I am a fellow rider and I couldn't imagine. I have had a couple run in front of me and it scares me.

As a truck driver, this prayer came to me about 10 years ago. It has never failed. I say it when I see the signs and whenever 'the voice' tells me to.
