I was very sorry and shocked to read this notice. Bobby was my best friend after high school but, unfortunately, new responsibilities, family, time, and miles led to many years of no contact. We shared a lot together -- good times, bad times -- helping each other through the bad, enjoying the good. I know Bobby will be missed. My sincere sympathy to all.
