  5. Jeff Carson says:

    I’m just glad that I had a chance to stop and say hi to my old boss and friend and his wife Chris. I remember when he hired me at Forest City. He had a plaque that read, YCDBSOYA. When I was new at the store he asked me if I knew what that said. No sir I replied. He told me, “ you can’t do business sitting on your ass.” I believe that he lived by that.
