So sorry about your loss. I will always remember the talks we would have in the office at Ludwigs when he would be in there visiting with my mother Donna. I will also remember our talks when I would go to Wilson lake and he would let my daughter Hannah and I use the dock. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
