I will miss Bob. I was glad we got to see him at the reunion and you all organized everything, it was a special time. I know he was a great father and grandfather, it showed in the hearts of your girls. I will always remember how proud they were of the mustangs that they got when finishing high school. We all were blessed to have known him. Love, Vicki
