Mona, You probably don't remember me but I worked with Bob at Clearwater High, Eisenhower and then as a Supervisor at High Point. He hired me as his Night Foreman at Eisenhower and helped me to become a Head Plant Operator and Supervisor. I had tried to track him down a couple of times but it is difficult with such a common name. I hope he enjoyed his retirement (as I am doing now). He was a wonderful friend to me. Tom Lynd
