To Bob’s family:

My heart and prayers go out to you. Although I have not seen Bob in a very long time, he was a mutual friend who hung out with all of us back in the Blue Island days. We were kids. But I remember him fondly and how very nice he was all of the time to me and everyone else he came across. Rest In Peace, you are in a better place.
