Cottongim family,

With my deepest Sympathy.
He was my supervisor for a while when I worked at Woodman Building. I loved to hear him tell stories and hear him laugh.
He will be truly missed. May your family keep only golden memories in their hearts so the pain of his loss lessens a little each day.
Blessings to all.
Judith Dalton (OBT)
