    My deepest sympathy and prayers to you Lucy, Joy and Family and Debbie and family. Bob brings back many memories and laughs. He liked to play the tough guy, but we all knew he was a gentle giant at heart. AND must I say, had a great gift to gab! He will forever live on in our cherished memories.
