I JUST found out about Bob’s passing. I’m so devastated to hear this. It’s been a few years since I called him. I feel terrible not calling him and Ann enough. I enjoyed all the years of working together. The best time ever, was sailing the yacht and going shopping. I will miss you Bob. I hope you are whole again and living it up up there. Until we meet again…
