Mark, Annemarie, and girls,
What a great picture of Bob. We will miss him so much. I feel like we had re-connected after so many years. I really appreciated him when Bill was so sick and died. Bobby was there with us the last few weeks. We are thinking of you at this time and hope you are doing okay. Love, Aunt Wilma
