      Some of my favorite memories were at the Adco picnics at the lake. Air Distributing family was a huge part of ours.

        Thank you for everything you did for Dad Skip. You gave him a means to support his family and helped him out of some jams along the way. There’s a reason you had so many people work years for you. They were loyal to you because you were loyal to them.

    RIP Buck. You meant so much to our family. Growing up more like siblings than aunt and nephew to mom and aunt June. Your passing is deeply felt. We love you and wish peace and recovery for all who love you.
