Got awful news this morning.  My buddy and co-worker Dane who's been in the hospital & rehab since April 2nd with double pneumonia passed away this morning.  He had been making definite progress up till Tuesday.  I guess his body finally just gave out.  Bless his family with comfort and healing.

Sorry to hear the bad news.  Our bodies are a wonderful creation but they can only take so much before they have had enough.  We will keep his family in our thoughts.

Hard to imagine Dane is gone, and been thinking of him the whole time I've been on my "Hog Pen's" roof replacing the 3 hale busted see through roofing sheets.  Replacing with normal steel roofing, as I don't trust the stuff anymore.

More sad news....a former Southern States employee, retired several years passed away today.  Billy Dunn, aka "Lightning" did the fence charger repair even after he retired,. to which I took over the charger repair after his health deteriorated a few months ago.  Lightning was a great guy and will be missed.  He was only 76yrs old, but he started going downhill after his wife passed a few years ago.  

  Tomorrow I will go to Dane's funeral (Dane was only 60), then to Lightning's visitation right after.  Our Hodgenville Southern States is closed tomorrow out of respect for both these fine men.

  I also found out from my Uncle Russell that Dane was my 1/2 4th cousin!   A small world just got a little smaller.

Sorry for all the bad news.  Again our prayer are with all.

The fact that your company is showing that respect seems to indicate how they feel about there people.  

One very great company in my opinion. I do not think any of our costumer will have an issue for what they are doing.
