    I am so deeply sorry to learn of the passing of Bob. One of the dearest people I have ever met. Always a smile and a "hello" and always interested in others. He was very kind to me when my mother was ill and showed a great consideration towards us during that hard time. I will carry his memory with me forever and never forget that smile
