All of us here in PA wish we could be there but covid has messed things up. Bob was a good Brother. We always had a lot of laughs when we talked. I will miss his laugh. He could grow anything, it's sad he won't get to pick the apples from the apple tree he planted in the spring. Gone too soon... We send our love, Jeanie, Bob, Mark, Adam and families, Kelly in MO.
