Just wanted to express our condolences with the loss of your father,grandfather,Bob. We lived just backyards from your dad and mom when they lived on South 28th. Very wonderful neighbors! After your mom passed we would at times bring your dad my husband's special deep fried fish. He really enjoyed that! I would occasionally send over supper and we always thought of your dad at Christmas and he enjoyed when our girls ran over a tray of Christmas "goodies". He was always in good humor. He often talked about his girls and would fill me in on what everyone was doing. A wonderful man... cherish the great memories! I wish you peace. Nancy and David Sapp
