    Think I was among the first of many more than several young engineers to be mentored by Frosty. Thank you, Frosty.

    Charlie and I both loved working with Frosty at the shipyard. He was a wonderful friend to everyone. We are sending our love and prayers to your family during this difficult time. We are so very sorry for your loss of such a wonderful man.
