The two summers Bobby worked as a summer intern at ULS were highlighted for me by his sense of humor, youthful outlook, fresh and innovative ideas. He was respectful and very easy to exchange heartfelt stories with. I could tell he was raised well and knew what unconditional love was. He made the unpleasant atmosphere in the department so much more fun. I am blessed to have known him – he was such a beautiful light. This is so very heartbreaking; my sincere condolences for Donna, Dennis and their extended family.
With love, Lee Ann Gusmano
