Patty and family, so sorry to hear about the passing of Bob. Chuck will never forget the day he went hunting at our cabin in Southern Ohio. He was told not to shut up hill, not long after that Chuck, heard a shell buzz by him. I am sure Derrick remembers that day.I am glad we were able to meet him and your family and share our special place with you. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
