  2. Bob and Bobby I was shocked and deeply sadden to hear of Barb’s passing. I think you both know how generally fond I was of her. Bobby both of your parents were a big part of our high school memmories and I feel terrible for not doing a better job of staying in touch over the years since moving to Kentucky. Your mother was someone I truely trusted and often confided in during high school and even years later. Know that she was well loved by all of your friends.
