Jan and family. Word alone could never say the things that are in our hearts concerning RC. He is the one who did more than anyone else to make our lives and dreams come true. He was a thinkers thinker, and one of the most intelligent men we have ever known. There was never a group of men who thought of their supervisor with such respect, as did ours. He brought us together at all times to work as a team, and in doing so, made us better people. He was loved by all the people in our little plant, and will be greatly missed. This is all from the heart, and what more can I say?
