Dear Candy, I am so sorry to hear about Bob. I have such fond memories of seeing you two at the 28th street Marina when I was growing up. He was a great guy and you guys were great together. You have been married as long as I have been alive. So many of my Dad's friends were such a part of my life growing up, especially at the Marina!!! Please take care of yourself!

Have not seen you for long time but will always remember your kindness and humor. Never will forget my sailboat ride you took me on as it was my first ever on a sailboat. Also enjoyed very much our times we all played tennis though a few years back now. Thanks for the memories Bob
