Bobby and I met shortly after the 1987 crash on Wall Street. I liked him immediately. I admired his courage in meeting life's challenges. He taught me to be more reasonable with people then I was at that time. He often spoke of how proud he was of his children and how he loved them so.

Rest in peace my friend you will always be remembered well.
