Hello, how are you and your family doing?

I am still with Bechtel, and we are up in Ashland, MS building a Gas powered power plant. We currently are about 70% done with the building of the 3 Units and in October we plan to start up Unit 1.

I have 3 girls now and we are currently expecting another child, but do not know what it is yet.

I can not tell you how much me and my family appreciate you telling me about this company. It has been a good company to work for and I have been blessed to be able to stay at home every night and drive to work. That will change around the first of the year when this job gets closer to startup. They have several new jobs starting up at the first of the year, but none of them in MS.


Again thanks for teaching me, believing in me, and being a friend when I needed one.

Dear Dr. Uddin:

Been meaning to get back with you and give you my new email address.

I have hired on with YATES. We are in MACON GA working on a power plant.

Just wanted to tell you that I talked to some of the folks at Ashland MS and if you still want them to come down and give a speech or talk a little about the Industrial side of construction you should give them a call.

You can call 1-662-224-0774 and talk to Paula De Simone. (lead civil) 0763 and talk to Kevin Rooney (Site Eng.)or any of the staff about coming out.

Take care and keep in touch.

Thanks for all the help and friendship.

I have stopped having kids now. I have 3 girls and 1 son born Jan 21.
