    Dear Elaine, My deepest condolences on the loss of your Bob. I will always remember the time on the boat fishing and our good times at Sweeneys Place and having dinner with you both. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Frannie Flanagan

    When I think of Bob, I always picture him on his boat catching fish, a lot of fish. I have a feeling that is where he was happiest and I’m sure he’s found his way to where the fishing is good. Thoughts and prayers to his friends and family. Doug DeRue
