    Bob and I go way back to West Junior High School and Reo Road. Bob was a good guy and fun to be with back in those years. We had lots of fun together growing up in the “good years.” Cushman Eagles were the scooter of day bacck then, and we both had one. We all have our appointed time on this earth and this time was Bob’s. Mine is coming who knows when.
