Bob was kind to my father, Maurice Rose. When Dad was no longer allowed to drive, Bob took him to the VA, to doctor appointments, etc. Bob drove Dad & Helen to meet Dad’s family (my sister & me, 4 of our cousins whose parents had been Dad’s siblings)to celebrate Dad’s 85th bday. My sister & I were grateful to Bob.
