      Thank you so much for the link, we read about him and share in your grief. That area of Delaware has been a major challenge for us for many years, as seen in our "Route 1" label.

      Please update us on his condition, if possible, and give him our best.

      May I simply just say what a relief to discover someone who genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the net.
      You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
      More and more people must read this and understand this side
      of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular since
      you definitely possess the gift.
