Dearest Sue, I have not been able to get you and Bob off my mind for the past few weeks-now I know why. I am so saddened to read of Bob’s passing, but am more than confident he is now singing with the angels…and my Alan. We moved back here in 2012 when Alan was very sick. He died October 11, 2013. When you are up to it, I hope you will contact me. I have returned to Stonebriar, but don’t know any one. I will always cherish our wonderful times together in the senior choir, and our fun dinners together.
