I was very saddened to hear about Bobbie' s passing. I just heard about it today from Margie or I would have been at the service. Also we don't get a paper so I didn't have a chance to see the obituary.

Joyce and Daughters, I was really schooled when I open the Christmas card and read Bob passed away. I remember that winter day when I brought him home from his car wreck and your reaction. I think I fell in love with all of you then. I am very sorry for your lost of Bob and hope for the better for all of you.
