I am so sorry to hear about Bob’s death. I went to Spain with Bob on a Kearney State studies abroad tour and remained good friends with him for many years through college and our 20s. He and his wife visited us not long after they married. We lost contact with each other while raising our children, but recently thought about him around the time he passed away. I wish his family many happy thoughts and memories during this difficult time.
