My brother Bob. You fought so hard and for so very long. We all knew you were tired and needed to let you go. What a wonderful husband, father and brother you were. So many accomplishments in your life. We will cherish the memories until we meet again. Go rest high on that mountain. Your work here is done. Love you, MaryLou
