    I knew both Carol and Bob when I was on staff at IAM. I'll always remember them fondly as a hardworking, caring couple devoted to helping their fellow men. They definitely left this world a better place from having been here. Diane Halperd

Our day in DC was a blast as Woody received the recognition he so deserved for over 60 years. It was the beginning of a special friendship between our families and yours. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you. Jeff Miller HonorAir
