I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband Barbara, and for Mike, Steve, Tom and John, the loss of your father. I last saw Bob and Barbara at a gathering in New London at Kris Crawford Edward's home last year. It was so good to see Bob and Barbara after many years. I talked to Bob at length and he was much himself, though a bit less. We had a good talk. Kris happened to call me this evening and I told her I had read Bob's obituary in this morning's "New York Times." Kris, too, was caught off guard. She and I recalled our
experiences with Bob and Barbara, and Bob's love of the seas. We also recalled Barbara revealing her secret of using frozen hot dogs pieces to pull in the bluefish when they were running off the rocks at Rowayton Beach. I am thankful I had the opportunity to see Bob only last year. He had a great life. He will be missed. Sincerely, David Dyer, previously of Rowayton, Milford now for 32 years.
