Helen and Family...
I was saddened to hear the news of Bobs passing. It made me reminisce of all the hours Glenn and I enjoyed with him in Florida, sitting outside and passing the time away just talking. We had fun times. I know this time is difficult, as it always is when losing a spouse/parent, but hold those memories dear to keep him near. Youre all in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs...Terri

Bob and Helen both were more than just bus drivers, they were like grandparents to me. My elementary years I saw these guys almost every day. N with all that's going on in the world it's sad to see a great person leave and I can't even give Helen the hug I want to give her. Still saw her at the bank n she always got the biggest smile and we would chat just for a minute but made me feel so good. Ppl like these guys are what makes Kane a great place.. my sympathy goes out to the whole family and if Helen sees this, I love you and thanks for taking good care of me in a few rough years of my childhood.
