The boys and I were so very saddened to receive the news of Bob's passing.  We will be forever grateful to have met and enjoyed this man's company.  His quick, dry wit and genuine sense of caring for others were some of his greatest strengths, and we will remember him fondly.  May your many memories of him comfort you in this time of sadness.

Donna, Tyler, and Dylan
