I was one of those grateful police officers whom Bob patiently counseled. Please add 'humility' to his his wonderful character attributes, because I never knew of his extensive schooling, or his breadth of knowledge. I knew he was a funny man, and well spoken. I only wish I'd known of his depth of history, so that I could've conversed with him more, and learned more about a favorite subject of mine, too - WWII. He was a fixture in police stations, and a gentleman, always. My sympathy on your loss.
I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2.
