Dianne and family; My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family. Growing up on the same street with Bob and Barb has made his passing more personal. May you know that the Lord will see you through. Remember all the memories you have made over those 33 years and cling to them. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Peggy Green
