I have known Bob most of my life. He was the father of my lifelong friend Pam Sheffy Sullivan. Grandfather to her , children Regina, Bobby and Delbert.
Plus a great grandparent to their children.
I know this world will be a sadder place for so many. But image seeing Pansy and Pam again. Maybe they are playing bingo.
Fly high Bob.
