I am so sorry to read of Bobs death. Bob and I both graduated from Dear old Valley High School in 1955.

He was my favorite resident to care for . I gave him the nick name hot wheels because he would always run around the nursing home and we’d tease each other everyday . He had and still has a special place in my heart .
