To all of Bob's family, please except my condolences.

Bob was one person in my young life who offered me much needed guidance not available to me. May he rest in pease.


To Diane and all Family:

I will always remember Bob as a quiet gentle soul. So very sorry for your loss. Will keep you all in my prayers and thoughts.
