OMG. I'm so sorry for your loss. I certainly understand how you must feel. Working with Bobby laying carpet tought me how to. I have done it myself since and would not have known how to if it weren't for him. I'm blessed for knowing him and he will certainly be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.
