Dear Penny,

I want you to know how sorry Hayden and I are to learn that Bob has passed away. I so enjoyed his company and all of our bridge games together. I always looked forward to Fridays and to seeing Bob and the other fellows. Bob was one of the smartest fellows I have ever met and was an amazing bridge player. What a pleasure it was to be his partner!

Our prayers are with you, Penny, and we hope that your fond memories of Bob will bring you comfort and sustain you in the coming weeks and months.

Dear Penny,
I am saddened to learn today of the loss of your beloved Bob. I knew Bob (and yourself) by means of the bridge that we played on occasion several years ago. Bob always reflected care for people and his love of family and friends. He was always cheerful and radiated his positive thoughts to everybody he came in contact with. I would occasionally see Bob at ACAC and we would chat each time to bring each other up to date in our families and lives. His booming bass voice always commanded respect from all he came in touch with. He was a very intelligent man, as you know, and he will be dearly missed by his entire family and countless friends and former colleagues. My prayers are with you, Lisa Michelle and all your grandchildren and great grandchildren. God bless you all.
Very respectfully,
Jim Donahue
