Bob was a dam good writer and dam good friend to boot. His departure has left me stunned, sad, and full of questions. Why would he leave us now? Was it truly his time or did the hospital fail him? Without going into the particulars, I witnessed a man struggling with his illness. Of course, he left behind a wonderful wife and four brilliant, beautiful daughters. How are they managing this unexpected event? I Pray for Bob; although I might imagine him fly fishing happily with his grandfather somewhere in heaven. I pray for Lucia and the children. There are and will be a lot of goodbyes and tears, I am sure. but I bet, Bob is grinning holding his fishing rod standing knee deep in crystal waters. Bless him and bless all of us that morn his passing. Bless the freedom he now has from his illness By Bob. If only you could send us a post card, Bob We'd love to see the view and you in fine and fettle form. We here can only imagine heaven. You get to be in it. I'll miss you and I will let my son Ben know. You were always asking after him. I am sure that you will be missed by many and more. Good bye Bob. Kate
