    Going to miss you my bro. no one else would have taken the time to cook and take care of Aunt Jane the way you did or bring me a pie or pot of soup, when I made the many trips down to see to Aunt Jane. You fixed up the old farmhouse and did so many kindnesses over the years, so many good memories , you and Bev, were family to us. Love you forever.

    So sorry to hear of Bob’s death just yesterday, January 31. We were friends for 45 years or so and am disappointed that I was not notified. My number was no doubt in his cell phone. My condolences to his friends of many years Lynn and Curt Vancil, and to his brand new wife, Teresa.
