Bob was so good for many years to my cousin, Gina, and her mom, Ann – he was like family. I got to know him when I helped with Gina in 2015, and we kept in touch after Gina passed. We visited Ann in the nursing home together, until Ann passed, and we still kept in touch afterward. He was a sweet person, even though he told tales of being a lot wilder in his younger days. I’ll miss our lunches at Denny’s, his sense of humor, and our conversations. I can picture him now, together with Rocket, Gina, and Ann – hanging out and watching the grass grow, enjoying each other’s company.
