Bob, thank you so much for these last 12 years of friendship and love treating me like more than just your daughter-in-law. I love you for all those hugs, laughs, kisses on the cheek and making me not miss my own father so much.

You hold a very special place in my heart and I will cherish that for eternity. May you find peace and comfort.
