Bob you were really a great friend and you helped me out when I was down and needed help. Thanks for being the kind of person you were.To Bob's family I want to let you know what a great person he was and how he was willing to help anyone that needed it and never asked for payment. He was a true friend to those around him. Hopefully we can all remember to be this kind of person by his example.
