Keep up the good work. Sigma and Excels shall never die until the last man goes. Is that not a brilliant phrase?

Come join us at the next dinner with partners, Boyd. It would be great to share lives again. I should add that we should all come out. How old are we? 80, 73, 71 . . . all high numbers in reference to human aging.

looking older each day, Damn! I miss George and we were never close buddies and all. Still, he was a presence in my life--just a good guy. .We can write pages about all of us, but I can not think of anything better. We all pass through this life and encounter other souls. And how we treat each other sums up our feelings, respect and the degree of positivism that we feel. Too bad that the world does not have more persons like George Whiting.
