    Tim & Gina, Was so sorry to hear about your Dad passing we used to see him on a regular basis when we worked on his car and truck few years ago he was always a pleasant guy to be around still every time he'd pass our house or we'd pass him out he wave real big at us. I know you will all miss him so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during such a sad time.

    I worked with Don as a conductor at the Frenchlickscenic railway for many years. He was one of the nicest guys I have ever known. A real gentleman. I am glad that I was able to take him to French Lick recently for one last train ride. He thoroughly enjoyed the day. Rest in peace Don.
