Our thoughts and prayers are with Helen June, Debra and Kelli. My brother was a wonderful man, capable in whatever he decided to do or touch. He was so giving of himself, family, friends, neighbors, strangers. Our fondest memory of him was when he and Helen June drove all the way to Kansas City from Memphis to meet our plane when we were making an extended visit to various scatters family members. After a nice visit with our cousin, they then drove us back to Memphis, stopping at our old family home in Galena, KS. They shared so much of Memphis with us, before delivering us to our next stop in Nashville at our son's house. What a wonderful time we all had. June and Bob
