    Dutch Schoultz : A Mighty Tree Has Fallen In the Forest

    "To my fellow Missourian..." was how Dutch always started our conversations. He will surely be missed and every time I see a post in all caps, I'll think of him! ( he said he wasn't yelling, he could read all caps better!!!) Godspeed old friend!
