    Dear Barbara and family; Glenna and I are very sad and sorry to learn of Miles’ passing. Miles and I go back a long way to the early days at Danco Equipment and then Caytec Equipment. Miles was a very loyal, reliable and respected employee, always there, always willing to help or work extra time. To lose him so suddenly must be devastating and our thoughts are with you. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.
    Glenna and Peter Vanderlinden.
