    I have a very few very fun memories of Bob with Ed and my dad, Bernie. They exemplify the fun that those boys and grown men had. I also have tender memories of their visit to my dad before he passed a couple years ago. I am very grateful for their visit to my dad, and have wonderful thoughts of a great reunion in heaven! Sincere thoughts and prayers for your family.
