Very sorry to see that Mr. Grider passed away. I worked with him for around 15 years at A.W. Sikking co. He was a super good man and working with him was a pleasure. I'm sure his family will miss him very much as will anyone who had the privilege of knowing him. The family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
We are sorry for your loss. Sending prayers your way.
