Dear Aunt Ruth, We just learned of Uncle Bob's passing from Terri. Ironically we had been talking about Uncle Bob just last week. We were reminiscing about the summer kitchen and Bob's bedroom in that little, cold shack. We will always remember Uncle Bob for his sense of humor and raised eyebrows. I can still remember Mom saying to me that Uncle Bob was going to marry this cute girl from Ogden and we were all excited about the news. What a great marriage, you two have been so cute together. We miss seeing you and send you our are in our prayers.Love, Jody and Don
