I was so so sorry to hear about Bob's passing, he and i worked together for a long time, and thanks to bobby i had work all the time. but more than that , he was a great friend, and i hoped we learned from each other. He had a lot of southern wisdom that i treasure to this day, and use it in fact, one that i think applies to him was this,' i may not be the best , but it will take the best to be me,'' He was very popular at work, and i am sure otherwise, so, the words i think that should be written on his headstone, from a popular song,'' at the bottom if this grave lies a big,big man'' bobby will live on in my memory until it's my time.......the world will not be as worthwhile without bobby around,,,,,,,,Debra i am so sorry for our loss
