I'm so sorry for your loss. He was such a kind, generous man. I'll never forget riding through the mountains in the jeep!

There are so many memories I wouldn't know where to begin. I remember when I was digging out the lawn in front of my parents' house. I had tied a string line so I could make a straight edge--the edger caught the nail and shot it into my thigh. Bob was almost all the way across the street to "supervise me". I turned and asked him to grab a pair of pliers so he could pull the nail out. I forgot how queasy he got at the sight of blood. I had to catch him before he fell on the street. My condolences to Lois, Jim and Brenda-- great neighbors for many years. RIP Bob!

I had forgotten all about that. Dad did have a weak stomach. He gagged so bad changing Alice's poopy diaper one time. 🤣 Thank you for sharing your memory Jim 🙂
