  1. My thoughts and Prayers go out to Judy and Bill. So sorry for yr loss. I did know about yr parents Larry Nancy..I loved that little girl..I did not know about Mike passing. Again my condolences to the McLean family.

  2. Jim and I go way back to the late 60’s and several yrs after. We always worked on our hot rods in the McLeans garage behind their family home. Larry worked for my Dad…George Fox of Fox Fast Service. Jim also worked for him as did Mike. .Ike drove a US mail truck. JIM was a good friend..as was his whole family.
