I am saddened to hear of his passing. This brings so many memories of working for him and Dr. Moncrief with CAPD when they first discovered it. We worked out of a little house off 34th street in Austin, TX. We named it the Acorn. It was exciting times. I used to stay there until all hours transferring dialysis solution from bottles to bags for our patients.

He and Dr Moncrief were brilliant. You could see their brains just working overtime. Of course, not literally. His family and friends will know what I mean.

So I have a little tidbit about his daughter that I would like to share. I hope she doesn't get upset. She worked at the Acorn with us and I so enjoyed working with her. I think of her fondly and have hoped she has been ok.
Anyway, she had a boyfriend and wanted to cook him chicken fried steak. She asked for our help and when we told her how, she asked something like what do I do with the chicken? She was precious and is one of my fondest memories.

I am sad he has passed. He touched a lot of lives and should be honored. My prayers and hugs go out to his family and friends.

Lou ~ from the first time I met knew how Bob with you, as "strangers at our front door" (per Kara), I knew how much you loved him, and I learned to love him, too, as a sister-in-law and a favorite sparring partner. I will miss his brilliance, his spirituality, his "out-of-the-box" personality, and his loving, sharing nature. We have all been blessed to have him in our lives. Many blessings!!

Please accept my sincerest condolences on Bob's passing. Bob and I went to grade school (Washington school)and high school(North High). For many of those years Bob would walk from his house down the alley to meet me at the end of the alley where I lived. As I recall we had a number of good conversations. I did not realize that Bob and I were born only two days apart. I'm honored to have known Bob and have great admiration for his accomplishments.

Bob was definitely a character and could be down right stubborn at times and we didn't always see eye to eye, but I will never forget the time I spent with him and his family.
