Nice video. I noticed your Dad worked at Ford Motor Co. My Dad did too for 30 years. I think he retired in 1986. I wonder if they knew each other? I’m going to ask my Dad. Did your Dad always buy Ford’s too? My Dad did. So sorry for your Dad’s passing. I’m sure he was very special to you. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
