Jennifer,
So sorry for your losses, words cannot express my heartfelt sadness and emptiness for the loss of your son and husband. Clint was such an entrepreneur and great guy and he will be missed in the Ag community. I really enjoyed the times we got to spend together at some of the farm shows we all attended swapping ideas and stories on new products for the Ag industry. My family's prayers are with you at this time and wish you the very best in the days ahead. Again so sorry for you and the rest of your family, may God's grace and mercy be with you at this time of healing, and in the days to come.
