I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of the kind messages and comments about my father passing. This has been a difficult couple of years, me being diagnosed with prostate cancer and now losing my father to the same disease. I truly appreciate the support both personally and professionally you have given me over my lifetime.
