Bobby and my sister Sandy were more than cousins; they were good friends. Growing up, I often saw him at our house and down the street at Uncle Nat and Aunt Bess’s. (They had a boxer named Gretchen who was bigger than I was.)
Bobby was always so easy to be with, always looking for a laugh. He was also the first Jewish guy I ever met who had a tattoo! I really liked him, admired him, and will miss him more than he would have thought.
