  • I just heard about this today, and was so sad for Seth’s family and friends. I only worked with him briefly, but he was very kind, always cheerful, and he was a hard worker. He was definitely a go-to person for us newbies, as he was always willing to give advice and help out when it was needed. I was so happy for him getting the incinerator job, and I remember how happy he was about it. I am sorry for your loss, and thinking and praying for you all.
