Bob was a dear friend. We both were pilots who enjoyed flying. We spent one day together attending an air show at the Little Rock Air Force Base -- that was a most enjoyable and memorable day. Bob loved humor, and found it in most every situation. God Bless, Bob. Be seeing you at the High Flight field.
