Annette, we are there for you and your children if and when you need us in even the smallest way, now and into the future. To Charlie and Bridget, our nephew and niece, and your families, the same. We send our love and hope for a future full of joy and happiness to you all. Thank you, Neil and Margaret and Barb for your condolences. I too have such happy memories of visits to and from the Jorgensens. I remember Neil and his dad having to leave just before dinner to do the milking, Neil turning up riding a horse, and most of all your kind and intelligent mother Doris, whom my own mother so admired.

DKO, You had such a tremendous positive impact on my career and my life. You taught me so many things that I have used for 20 years - so many that I've forgotten a number of them by now. My first 6 years in the business I worked for you at JA Jones and learned most of what I know today. Everything from how to calculate the bond cost on a change order to how to calculate the load on a sheet pile, how to resource load the schedule, tracking unit rates, the best way to present the write-down in the JSR, and even more importantly, saving for retirement and so many other things. You also taught me how to always take the time to teach the next generation. You were one of the best construction engineers that I've ever met or worked with. Thank you for all that you did for myself and so many others. You can't be replaced and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace old friend. JBS
