    Bob was a great friend. Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to visit a lot over the years but I have many, many great memories. I can’t tell you how much fishing we did. We literally made a trip to Branched Oak at least 3 to 4 times a week for several years. We played cards and took his uncle Percy and Percy’s best friend Emie to Merit and other lakes through out the state. We remodeled his home, worked together, fished, traveled and so much more. I truly enjoyed sitting around and visiting about everything that he had done and accomplished in his life and everything else going on in the world. I only wish I would have visited with him more over the years. He will be missed!

    Shirley, Lyle & I are so sorry to hear of your husbands passing. I know it has been a long time since we have seen you or we have talked. We are fine (as good as can be expected for our age). We now live with our oldest daughter, Kathy. Would love to talk to you whenever you can. My cell #352-651-3203 and email is I still think of you and wonder how you are. Take care and please get back in touch with us. I hope your children are close to you at this time. Love, Jeanne
