I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I have such wonderful memories of times spent at your house and Lamoine, especially our parades. Bob was always kind and gentle, and he seemed 7 feet tall when I was young! He appeared to be a man of few words, but his eyes would sparkle when he was amused. I think you know my husband Tim cared for Bob at the vets home. Knowing what a devoted nurse he is, I can assure you that your dad was well tended to and respected. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. Hugs, Dale
