Dear Jim, Keith and Mark, I send my deepest sympathy to you and your family on the death of your dear father, Bob. I have wonderful memories of our breakfast group at Alice's or at the Elks. I worked for NJ Bell. Your Dad and I shared many a good story about our growing up in the business. I am happy to have had the opportunity to know him over the years. Also to have met his sons when you came to Alice's with him.
