We’re so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing although we got the feeling he was ready. We’re so thankful for the years of friendship between the Cooks & the Nichols for the many years of dancing, eating out & celebrations. Bob was a good friend to Mother after they lost Millie & Nick. So fun to see the picture of the two couples in cowboy outfits! Your family was always so gracious to include Mother in your family gatherings. I know he’ll be missed.

Sorry we can’t join you for the memorial service.
