Our condolences on your father's passing. Whenever we asked permission to stock salmon behind his house, Gene was always agreeable and enthusiastic. You told me he enjoyed boasting to his friends that
"They're stocking salmon in my backyard!". I'm glad we were able to give him that pleasure. His big smile will be missed.
