I was saddened to hear that Bob passed away. I met Bob back in the seventies but lost contact after we moved away.
Please accept our heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your loved one.

I met Robert back in the mid seventies. He was a dedicated person, hard worker, and thoughtful. My life has been better for knowing him. RIP my friend.
