Emma, Janice and all Family:
So sorry to see Bob leave us. He has an outstanding, talented man who was a pleasure. Our real estate dealings were always a joy. And the red color he loved so much is why he painted his homes red. Looks great! May God comfort each of you and let the good memories flow.
