I am so sorry about Bob's passing. We have always been such good friends. Cheryl, I will always cherish the good times we all had. Our kids grew up together. I remember the Halloween party that we all dressed up and had so much fun. I remember Bob and Thomas always trying to out do each other and arguing about who was right. Yet, they would always be there for each other when needed. I know Bob would want you to take care of yourself. I love you and I am going to miss Bob too. I will keep you in my prayers daily. Love, Sue Pierce
