Rick, Lorrie and All:
So sorry to hear about Bob. He always had a smile on his face when we saw him. When talking to him, he always cracked jokes and had us laughing. Will miss seeing him in town as everyone else will. You now have 2 great Guardian Angels to watch over you. Will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
