I knew Bob from delivering cars from my wrecker service days. He always seemed like the ideal guy. Fair and honest, just like the scout he was. I always watched the house on Lake ave and once and awhile I would see him, I would honk, he had no idea of who I was anymore, but he always waved.
Knew Phil from those days too.
Although we will miss Bob.
What really caught my eye was the poem on his pray card by Brian Knox.
That’s exactly how I remember my father, who’s been gone since 1987.
Job well done Brian!
We never forget, but it does get easier with time.
Till we meet agian.
