  1. Bob was so caring and one of the smaratest guys we have known. Our thoughts and love are with you during this difficult time

  2. Mary Ann,

    My deepest condolences to you on the passing of Bob. He was an incredible influence on me in my training as a Pediatric Dentist. I fondly remember my time in Lincoln with him from 1977-1979. I was honored to have him with me in New Orleans when I became a Diplomat of the American Board. I also fondly remember as a graduate student being honored to have you and Bob over to my apartment in Lincoln for dinner. He will always be remembered by me……
