Bob was the best of us . I wish he was still here. he as gone to soon. I was hoping to spend some time with him in my retierement. I guess we all think that there will be time to do what we want later. Bob did what he wanted and I am glad for him. I lost my brother Kenneth and one of my oldest friends last year and now my closest cousin. Time waits for no man. Mark
