Paul, Henry was my great uncle. He was a wonderful man. Your post reminds me of the stories my family used to tell. Thank you for the trip down memory lane.
thank you for the postcard
I lived and worked at Headquarters in the fall of 1970. I remember the faces but only a few names. Hank and Sherman. Another brother up from Florida. Joe, I think his name might’ve been, from Pine Center.
Robert, Sherman was my grandfather. Unfortunately, neither he nor the brothers are with us any longer. They were wonderful men that taught us the value of hard work, customer service, salesmanship, and integrity. You were at Headquarters several years before I was born. I wish I could have enjoyed it as you and so many others have. Unfortunately like my grandfather and his brothers all that remains is a memory.
