I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I worked with Bob for many years. He and I would walk from time to time at lunch for exercise, and we shared in conversation about our lives. He was a wonderful person and it was my pleasure to work with him and most of all to be friends. Please accept my condolences. At this sad time I offer my deepest sympathy and prayers to the Bob's family.
