As I've thought about Bob this week, I remember a lot about... well, food and nicknames!! I remember "Hoagie Bob" working away in the kitchen building custom mile-high hoagies for everyone. I also picture him frying up liver mush for breakfast, and I hold him responsible for my addiction to the same :) I remember Scottie and her sisters fondly calling him "Bob Ditty Bob." And just as if it were yesterday, I can clearly see him adoringly holding the new grand-babies as they each came along. There was also the caring man who without fail always checked our tires before we hit the highway. And slipped crisp bills in my hand for gas money or emergencies on the trip. I remember being jealous of his well tended and producing vegetable garden. And of course, my last memory was from maybe 10 years ago, I ran into him at the Lowe's in Hickory. Though we hadn't seen each other in years by then, we stood and chatted about the girls and other goings on for quite a nice while.
