Carolyn and Bobby, I am so sad to hear of Bob's passing. He and I ran into each other last year at physical therapy and had such a nice visit; I'm so glad I got that opportunity. Bob was one of the nicest guys I've ever known, and always was such a good neighbor to Dad and Mom...they thought the world of him. Bob talked to me about how good Dad always was to him too. I hope your memories will help comfort you in coming weeks; I know that I, Matt, and Katie will always have warm memories of Bob and both of you.
