I am so sorry to see that Bob has passed away. I have many, many good memories of the times we spent together playing monopoly. I would never give in, and if I remember correctly Bob beat me every time we played. I loved his humor and the fact that he was always upbeat. He was a good man and I am sure a good husband and father. Darcy, I am sure you don't remember me but we spent a lot of time together on Saturday nights when your Mom and Bob were "courting". We played "Tip It" and other silly games and I loved spending the time with you. Margo I am so sorry. May God bless you all. Remember the good times, there were lots of them. Joan
