    This is being posted by request from long time IHSTO member Dave Davis. He told me his brother, Woody Davis, is dying from ALS.

    Dave tells me IH has been a large part of Woody's life.

    The "special request" is to have a large showing of IH vehicles at Woody's funeral. Yes, they are planning ahead. The plan is to have the funeral on a Saturday in Boring and process from the church to Corbett. The hearse will be Woody's 67 diesel pickup and when the processional reaches Corbett, Woody's casket, handmade by his brother-in-law, will be transferred to a horse drawn covered wagon to be taken the last mile or so to the cemetary.

    Dave also told me CBS News did a article on Woody last January. Here is the link: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_1...-repaid-in-mans-final-months/?tag=mncol;lst;2

    In addition, Reader's Digest also came to Corbett for an interview.


    If anyone would like to contact Dave directly and let him know you would like to be a part of the procession, his email is:

    PM me if you would like Dave's phone number.
