    I am sorry i could not be there after a recent medical condition I am useing a walker and makes it hard get around. I bought my first truck from Leon in about 1972 and he drove it and our other petebilt. He got Gary to go with him as a team some and maybe Gary drove by his self. I got a call one day from Smith Transfer Truck Line, ask for reference on Gary and I gave him a good one. I think he got hied then. That was in 1973 maybe. Both Gary and Leon are special guys and along with their parents ust good people. Again I am sorry for your loss.
