Bob and family-
So many wonderful memories from the late 70's in Torrejon, Spain. You and Elaine were our mentors. Elaine drove me and many others to tour small pueblos and to shop for wonderful memories. Then your family moved to San Antonio. 2 1/2 years later, we got the same orders. We mailed our silver chest full of sterling silver to you and Elaine hide it under your bed. We opened it and the chest dissolved but the silver was fine. OWC times at Kelly with luncheons, antique club and family get-togethers . We were so pleased when you bought a home near us. Bob, we treasure our friendship. You all are truly loved.
