Thank you "Wood" for all the great memories we had working together at Krotz Springs Refinery. It was a wonderful 30 years. You've always been there just to lend an ear and talk about work, Penn State and LSU football, family and just hang out. You were a person that I always looked up to and modeled my patience after. You were a great friend and will be sadly missed. Thank you again for all the great times we had.
