Dear Terry, Jeff and family:

I’m so very sorry for your loss. I will always remember Bob as a great and funny man. Always with mischief in his eye!

The last time I saw him (this past Fall), he played Wii bowling with my 7 year old son and kicked his butt. I said; “Bob, you aren’t going to let the kid win?”. He laughed and said, “Hell no, it’s my game, he’d know!”.

I’m sorry I can’t be there Monday.

Take good care.
