Mrs. Speaks & family, I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Speaks at American Electric Power. He was a nice man who loved his family very much. I am blessed to have known him and call him friend. I was the one who made the "Never Fail Fudge". You and your family have my heartfelt sympathy. He will be missed.
