I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bob's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Bob for many years and we fought like cats and dogs. He reached out to me when his Dad passed and we put that behind us. I'm so glad we had the chance to make amends. As you share, talk, and remember, may you truly find that the one you loved so much is still in your heart. And, may the prayers of others sustain you during this time of loss.
