Doc was a great man and a great bee keeper! He taught many of people not to fear bees. What he taught me was to raise queens early in the north, and it's not easy working in bee hives with snow falling on your back much less grafting! I commend him for all of his hard work and struggles to do this year after year. There is one thing that I can say definately came from him is my two year old son will see everyone out of our driveway and anyone that knew Doc knows where that may have come from. It surely was not me. THANKS Doc!
