To Sally, Bill and your families; I am sorry for your loss. Though I hadn't seen Bob in recent years, I did spend a lot of time with him years ago when he was the best man at mine and Kevin's wedding as well as godfather to my daughter Kelly. I didn't always agree with him, but he was a passionate man and I gave him credit for that. May he rest in peace.
