Hi Len

Hey it was great to work with you at Leitrim. As an Army guy I always valued your opinion and liked to get your thoughts on things to make sure that I wasn’t being too harsh. And most of the time you would back up me up and even encourage me to go further. I always enjoyed the beers at the mess on Friday afternoon, it helped keep me same when I was on IR. Headed to North Bay eh? Hmmm let me know if you need a fishing partner up there. Have a great retirement.
