Bob; you have been a wonderful neighbor and friend to my parents for 25 years. Over the past year, your help hooking me up with a local electrician, landscaper and tree guy after the storm was immeasurable. Thanks for the round of golf in Old Tappan as well. Sorry I didn't get the chance to buy you steak in appreciation. God Bless Bob......
