I am so sorry for your loss. Bob was always so kind and always asked about our daughter that he helped tutor in Math years ago at Cure' when he volunteered. We would see Bob and Norma at First Watch and out and about. They were so in love. I know he is glad to be with her now. Jack Bolin is welcoming his old friend up in heaven. What wonderful parents you had. You're in our thoughts and prayers, Matt and Janis
