If you are lucky enough to find a friend . I have been so lucky to have Bob and his family as friends. Bob would always make your day better (HE ALWAYS PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE) And when you were with him. He would make your day lighter. if a book was written about the things he done for friends and people he didnt know that well. It would be a two volume set. If I wrote a book about the past 65 years of being friends with Bob. It would be an interesting read. (BOB WILL BE MISSED BY MANY) Love you Bob. Frank and Carol Bennett Family
