Every Christmas Eve was spent with my dad's family. We rotated houses each year so that the responsibility was shared. One year, when I was around 7, the dinner was at Uncle Bob and Aunt Bobbie's home. My Uncle Bob told me that mice would run out from under his grandfather clock when it chimed. Now when you are a little girl, that can be quite scary, so I made sure to run past the clock. As the years have gone by, to this day, every time I see a grandfather clock, or hear one chime, I think of my Uncle Bob and smile! Thank you for that memory! You are in my thoughts, as is your family!

I haven't seen Bob for many years. It's been almost 20 I think. We worked together in the investment business back in 1986 or 1987. I would call him occasionally to talk to him, May he rest in peace.

I’m very sorry for your loss. I didn’t know him, but Paula is a delight and I wish peace for your mourning.
