  1. Excellent outline. We are in that process, and Dennis and Rob’s outline was highly helpful for both generations as well as our senior leadership team. thanks.

    • Thank you, Kent. Waiting for Jim and Don to reply so the whole IA contingent has had their comments!

  2. I had to work my way up from cleanup man, to mixer man, to mason, to mason foreman to owner. Best part for me was seeing how my family did things in the business while I was growing up.
