    I’m so sorry about Catfish’s passing. I just found out about 25 minutes ago. Had I known, I would have surely paid my respects. I really liked him. I always heard that he was the best that’s ever been when it comes to installing windshields…faster than two or three combined on the job. Again, I’m so sorry. Larry Bralley
