    So sorry to learn of Mr. Latham’s death. My sincere sympthay each of you, Yvonne, Gary, Britt and family. He hired me in October 1965 even though I went on to work with Corrections in later years. He was a great mentor to me during my younger years and taught me so much. I give him much credit for my success in the “work world”. He taught me so much in regard to good work ethics and I knew he would always give me good advice and his honest opinion for which I respected and have will always be grateful.
