I worked with your dad as an inspector at Fisher Body. One very, hot day, your dad asked me “what time is it?” Instead of just saying: 5 minutes to 2. I started singing, “5 minutes to 2, Horn, Horn, Horn, 5 minutes to 2, Horn, Horn, Horn” I looked at your dad, and he had the biggest grin on his face. The rest of the day went a lot easier after that short comic relief. It was a honor and a joy to work with your dad. from PM
