Thinking of you Tammy. So sorry for your loss of Bob. He was a good neighbor and so talented to always do what you wanted (in your home, making Santas and Snowmen, and other carpenter projects). I will miss talking to him on his golf cart varmit trips. When I would ask him how he was, he would always say, "If I was any better I couldn't stand it!"
