Scott I'm so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I've always enjoyed coming in the restaurant and speaking with him and you all. He was a great man. I knew your brother Steve when he worked at the old Carolina Fine Foods in SImpsonville. His son Shawn and my son Chris were about the same age.Your dad and Steve are having a reunion now in heaven. You all will be in my prayers.
