    I met Bob while I was in college in the fall of 1981. He became a life long friend, although the last few years we fell out of touch. I had a feeling today about him and searched online to find his obituary. The last time I talked to him, he said he had diabetes. To the family, I am very sorry for your loss. I will always remember his sense of humor. I have a singing and dancing frog on my piano that all the kids love to play with. RIP my friend! 🙁
