I lived right across the street from Bob for several years. My older children, Brooke and Christian, grew up knowing Bob and Betty. They were family to us. Sharing gardening tips, a vast array of cookies, my family's homemade sauce. We enjoyed some pretty colorful stories from Bob on their front porch. Heaven has gotten a treasure.
