Bobby, David, Jeff and Family, even after two weeks, it is still a shock to me and all of you as well, that your Dad has passed. I feel terrible that I couldn't be there for his services today. It is also unbelievable that we have been friends for more than fifty years, and even though we didn't see each other as often as we both would have liked, we communicated via phone a number of times over the course of the years. I even visited your Dad on my trips down to Florida. I also planned on visiting him in June and called him about five weeks ago to see if he was going to be in Ft. Meyers and did he have room for a guy from NY, dressed in a brown leather coat and blue tinted sunglasses. We talked about that quite often during our phone calls.
Your Dad was a very good man, loved you guys and was a loyal friend. I would like to get together with all the Wiricks on my next visit to Michigan to CELEBRATE your Dad. I want you all to know that even though I am not there, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your Dad. Rest in Peace, Bob, and work on getting another ball team ready the next time we are together. Your friend, Eddie "D" and Gloria Davis.
