Karon I was so sorry to learn of Bobby's passing. I think back last year at Ruth's birthday an the wonderful time we all had. Bobby had a very dry sense of humor and he would get me every time. He taught me a lot about the insurance and bond industry. You have taken such good, loving care of Bobby.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
