Sandy, Sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. We called Mary Jo to tell her and she was on the phone with you. Bo Bo knew how to get a party going. We were wild kids in our younger days. I know he suffered a lot in the last few years of his life. I visited him in the rest home about a year ago. He was a gentle, kind person and always greeted you with a large smile. Take care and God bless.
