I miss you daddy. Memories of you teaching me how to fish, shoot the 12 gauge, hunt, be a good farm kid have all been floding back lately. Love you forever, your sweetpea

I always enjoyed chatting and laughing with Bob when we worked together. We also had a lot of fun in Spanish Class in high school.
