Death is a part of Life, and although Pappy lived a long life, its not easy saying good bye. My thoughts are with you Matt, Leigh and Ben. May good memories get you through this difficult time. I have a memory of walking a soybean field one hot summer pulling weeds. I was happy to do it because Pappy paid almost twice as much as Uncle Charlie. He didnt have to, but he wanted to help his nephew earn some money. I knew it and always appreciated that. I have a memory of visiting dad and Pappy, when dad was in the same assisted living residence for a few days. I sat on the floor in his room, and listened to the two talk old Local 100 stories. Dad did most of the talking, Pappy listened and laughed a lot. Pappy offered me a soda. Thats what Naumanns do when you visit them. I am so very sorry for your loss. I know Uncle Pappy is somewhere, probably trying to get two more guys sent out of the Hall.
