To the family of Bob, I am so sorry for your loss, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Bob was such a sweet man, he always had a smile on his face and that giggle I will never forget. I hope him and Uncle Charles can play some golf . Love and hugs to all of you. Bob will always have a special place in my heart.
