I had a friend who was an operator in Williams California. His brother died in a crash viewed by his dad. My friend, Bob Caldwell was a 2 tour V.N. veteran and returned to the business. A very experienced pilot and very popular too. Made a big contribution to farming in his local area. He died of prostate. His dad saw that too.

But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.
