    Sending deepest regrets from my mother, Mary L. Timmons Cook. We did not know of Bobs’ passing until today. Mom being 99 still has a wonderful memory of taking care of Bob when he was a boy. She pulled out pictures from her most recent birthday celebrations where Bob and Josephine attended. We deeply regret not being able to attend his services, but will keep his memory alive in our hearts, for sure Mary will, she is very sadden with his passing.
    Sincerely, Mom sends her love and prayers Josephine and family.
