Hey Rich,
I am glad everything is working out for Zach.I am glad you're doing well. Thanks for the email.I was wondering, if we are going to have Rick Lasky in Osceola any time soon. We have so many new members that may want to hear what hes got to say. I wish we could inspire some of our own. As I came back from Chicago, I told so many stories about Chicagos Bravest and their unity. I love my job man!!! I look forward to our meeting next month at 72. Take care brother.Stay healthy and be safe.
