Very sorry for your loss. Bob was a good person and it was a pleasure to know him.

Robert's Grandson Dakota was a student of mine in both 2nd and 4th grade. Bob would stop into the classroom, look at Dakota and say "drop and give your teacher 5", Dakota would drop to the floor and do 5 push ups. One day I will never forget was the day I received a note from a substitute teacher. She wasn't sure what had happened, but she said a man came to the classroom and said "drop and give your teacher five," She said every student in the class got on the floor nd started doing push ups. I'll bet even Bob was surprised at that one. It was always a bright spot when he showed up. I know he will be missed. My prayers are with Cheryl, Dakota , and the rest of the family.

It is hard to believe that you and David are both gone now. I had hoped that we could have all been together at one more reunion. But now you can tell more stories while my mom corrects you.
