“Family companies are about a
  family working together and
building up something. It gives a
 sense of accomplishment if you
            do well.” 1

 “I’m very hopeful that Melinda
and my son Edward are going to
  stay in the family business. I
enjoy what I do here, so I’m here
as long as the Good Lord and the
 Board of Directors permit. I’ve
worked too hard to sell it out.” 3
