Very sorry for your loss. I believe my dad, Dick Beeney, who passed in 1971, probably worked with Paul at MPS. I definitely remember your mother from 4-H days when I think she was a leader in Claibourne with my mom, Thelma. It’s hard to believe that was all more than 50 years ago. I’m awfully glad they taught me to cook!
