Good afternoon everyone,

I know I don't have much to contribute to the forums lately (with a busy life in school, working full time, & planning a wedding), I muster enough energy to read occasionally but have very little tractor activity to speak of - The '41 SC and the '41 Unstyled A are sitting in the garage waiting for spring or spare time, but I have to go a different direction in my talks today...

I am sorry to inform everyone (even though nobody on the forum knew my father), but he passed away suddenly on Thursday from a massive heart attack at the age of 55. His health has seen some sticky spots the last few years, but I believe now he is at peace. I wanted to post on here, simply because he supported my passion for tractors, and I know all of you would share a little bit of grief to have lost a fellow enthusiast. The photo included is of my dad, and my grandfather (deceased in 1993) working on grandpa's 1940 IH M in the summer of 1988. I appreciate everyone's condolences, and am thinking that the '41 Unstyled A JD will be finished up in his memory - he never did get to see the tractor before he passed.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers during this tough time for my family. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving, and it is great to see such support from a great group of people. Again, thank you... Hopefully I can make another tractor related post soon.
