I would like to pass my condolences on the passing of your dad, but he will always be with you, just up the stream a little more or over the next hollow where the brookies grow as big as your arm and the grouse grow to the size of chickens! I remeber the hunting and fishing stories shared at the Reesedale Power Plant over 20 some years ago. Will always remenber those days. Again my condolences to you.I think back then was when your dad had his " topping off" party. Take care, old friend... Pat the carpenter
