    Sandra, Sheila, Debby and family we are so sorry to hear about Dewitt, I know he was a true champion and great father. Be truly grateful that you had the guidance and help from both your parents for such a long time. We will keep the entire family in our prayers. We have some great memories from Henry Horton and will treasure them forever.

    Dear Family of Goldman,

    Goldman was my boss at DuPont in the mid 60’s. We were in the IRC office. He was one of the wisest men I have ever known. I learned so much from him. And he was the best boss I ever had in my 33 years with DuPont. I will always remember him fondly. We all lost a great man. My prayers are with you.
