Very sad, I plan to go by the services Sat the 25th.  We have lost way too many.

 It is hard losing classmates that you have known since grade school. I always thought of Bob as a “gentle soul” and always kind to others.  We were fortunate to have had him as a  classmate.  My sympathy to his family.

The loss of another class mate. I always thought Bob was an invincible "warrior"! Our wonderful class of 1959 is dwindling.
