We still see Bob with his handsome smile that he so generously shared with everyone he met.
The Bob and Betsy team at the Bridge tables were skilled contenders, so took home the prize money most of the time.
Bob enjoyed so many events and vacations with his accomplished family . One of still vivid memories for us was the 50's anniversary party their children gave them in Susans's beautiful back yard.
Love'n hugs, Carolyn and Arnie
