  2. Kevin, I am as saddened by your loss of your father as I was when my dad passed. Losing one so instrumental in helping guide you to who you are today can only be softened by the fond memories of him, and that I pray you will never lose those memories. Although I never met your dad, the members of the ETI team have the pleasure of working with someone whom I am sure represents his values of trust, friendship, leadership and enterprising spirit. I am thankful to God for the opportunity and to your dad for having left such a legacy. Meriam and I extend our condolences to you and Teri and the rest of the Mallon family. Bill Wilhelm
