So many good times. So many miles traveled together. So many business
problems solved. So many wonderful memories. We are blessed to have known Bob and Claudia and have them as close friends all these years.

I send my deepest sympathy to all of you. My son, Alex, and I were recently talking about an evening I spent with Bob and Claudia, Perry and Iva Talley and Bruce. The Winnetonka Jazz Band held a concert and we were all sitting together enjoying the big-band music. Bob, Claudia, Perry and Iva were quite a busy group. All five have moved on and left us here to carry on. I find comfort when I look into the night sky and see the stars glowing; I like to think our loved ones have turned them on for us - to guide us along. My thoughts are with all of you.

Bob Bates was a statesman and a wonderful representative of the title insurance industry. He led well and served well. He was a mentor to many and a role model to all. This morning as i looked in the ALTA directory I came accorss Bob's name and thought to contact him this week. Then saw the announcement of his homegoing. Thank you Bob for leading our industry!
