I had no idea until I went on the internet today, that you had lost a son and a brother, Veronica and Carol. My love and prayers are with your whole family at this devastating time and you'll be kept close in my prayers. I'll be in touch soon Carol before we leave on our trip.

Another member of FSHS Class of '68 gone too soon. Bob and I had classes together, and I can still picture him in the percussion section of the band. To his Mom and sister Carol I send my sympathy.

I remember Bob fondly from our high school days. He was such a quiet person while I was the talkative one. Please know that you have my sympathy.
