I am sorry that I could not be there today, but I still share in your grief. If it wasn't for Mr. Hough, I would not be the man I am today. I miss him coming in the warehouse on Hodge street with his little black book, quizing me about the difference between a 6205 & a 6305 bearing. I gave the wrong answer the first time around, but his questions made me want to learn more about the bearing industry and because of him, I enjoy a nice life. I have just celebrated my 32nd year working for MBS/Motion, and I owe it all to Mr. Hough. I miss working for you Sue, and I miss the great times working together with you Eric. Working for MBS has given me so many wonderful memories and knowledge. I will always be grateful to the whole Hough family. Thank you and God bless you all.
