I am very sorry to see this happen again to a great company who bent over
backwards to assist customers. I hope ThemoShandonFisherRichardRaymond (to
be continued) will start to keep the parts that made Richard Allen, Raymond
A. Lamb and others great to work with

I am also very sorry to see Tonia and Jerry go.
