Evie and I are very sorry for your loss.
Bobby and I go back a long way, as you know.
Although we have not spent a lot of time together since you and Bobby moved to Brandon, we did spend (and work) together a lot back in Fleming country . Many good times and pranks, just ask Evie.
We did get to know your great family in latter years and Bob was always proud to talk about them.
Bob always took great pleasure in teasing our daughters, Gina and Michele, and he'll be fondly remembered.
We will miss him.
Love from Alex and Evie
