    Bob and I both send our sympathy. Bob saw Dr John and came home and told me about Brian’s passing. I was shocked and wished I could have been there for you. I could not attend the service since the VA had me captured but you and he are in my prayers and thoughts. If you need anything let me know. We were and will always be a team. Love Deb.
