Wow, we had 36 wonderful folks who were able to put aside their busy pre-holiday plans to honor Mr. Woodard today. And a couple of first time members today as well, thank you Stu and David. Great teamwork and show of respect by everyone, which is really the key to doing what we do well. Hopefully the Woodard family's Christmas is a little less sad because we were there today.
Everyone have a Merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year.
