You have my deepest sympathy and my prayers go out to you and Meika .
Although I don’t get the pleasure of working with Brock a lot the few times I did I found him to be a good worker and it didn’t take long to realize he was a good father and friend. He always had a smile . He will be greatly missed here at Atlas Butler
A friend Larry
