Pat we just read that Bob passed. I tried to visit Bob several times when Karen and I would return to West Helena and it never seemed to work out. I’m sure you don’t who I am but Bobs mom and my dad were brother and sister. Bob would come out to our house on 4th street and hunt I was 9 Bob was 13 I guess. Bob was around a lot and we loved each other. We are sorry for your loss. I know I’ll see him one day again. God bless you.
