Maggie and I treasure the memories of all the great gatherings that included Bob and Cathy. We admired their dedication to Casey and Cori. They knew friendship and how to enjoy life.
Rest in peace.

Bob and Cathy (Casey and Cori) were guests here as we traveled to Lions events. Patty and I truly enjoyed their visits and travel. The girls enjoyed playing with the Canine Companion for Independence puppy and our forever dog. Great fun, a long time ago.

I will always remember Bob’s hearty, effusive, and jovial laughter,
during our years os service to Lions Clubs International.

We shared, persisted, and gave, together as District Governors.
