  2. I have many wonderful memories of your dad and grandfather, when we both worked for Puffer-Sweiven. He was a special person. Craig, his picture looks like it could be you when I first met you as a young man! Mo and I lost touch over the years, yet I have thought of him often. There are many great stories. I repeat some of Mo’s words of wisdom on occasion, and always credit them to him. Blessings to all of you as you navigate this new landscape.
