    Dear Susan and family: Bob was like a father to me these last 20 years or so. His vast knowledge has been so inspirational. I will greatly miss our witty phone calls and lessons learned at the knee of the master. I am grateful for his enthusiam for life and cherish the times that I was privileged to be with and interact with him. May you find grace and comfort at this difficult time.
