My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for your loss. Bobby was a great guy and I am lucky to have been there when he and Del met and eventually married. I still remember the great times we had while he was based at Beale AFB in California. He will be missed.337

Uncle Bob, I never got the chance to know you well, and I am sorry that the distance between us prevented that. My heart still is heavy that you have left this earth. But I am glad that you are now free. You will be missed & not forgotten. Rest in peace Uncle Bob.
