…big, big loss to this family…. I met June more than 60 years ago, and have been enriched as I witnessed her unswerving commitment to Bob, their children and grandchildren. She was literally “the girl next door” when Bob met her… and she could not have chosen a nicer family to join way back then, for Bob and his parents are/were superb folks! Thank you June and Bob for the committed friendship you have offered me.
