Mary and family I was so very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. What a terrific fellow! He was always on the lookout for local history items for my collection and thanks to him many unusual items were added. He was also a master furniture repairer, restorer and woodworker, and I have several pieces that he lovingly restored. He was always fun to talk with and a warm and caring person. He will be greatly missed by many, and I know that I will. Please accept my love and sincere sympathy. Heaven has a wonderful new addition - until we meet again.
