    R.I.P. Uncle Bob – and my deepest condolences to Cousin Craig. Even though I did not get to see Bob often, every time I did it was like no time had passed. What a great guy. He loved golf, his corvette, his late wife Aunt Karen, Cousin Craig, and he loved his sister and my Mother. He spent so much time with Mom, and I am truly convinced that when she left, she took a large piece of Bob with her. So, now Bob, Karen, Jim, Nancy, and Nettie are all back together again, and U Bob is looking for a heavenly golf course.

    Dear Craig, Nothing prepares us for what it’s like to lose our parents. I know how much you’ll miss him. You have my heartfelt sympathy. I’m picturing a pretty great reunion when Karen (and my folks, and Nancy and all the others who’ve gone before) saw him coming. They had so much fun together!
