Friday 24 April 2020 -- I appreciate the chance to once again remember you with a note. Fond memories are strong things (Fairbury Blade). My desktop library stands at 45 books since 1990. All bound in hardback. My wife and I use this stuff often for reference. I figure this is a legacy to my children. Dale Albee

It can't be two years since your death, Bob. Time passes too quickly! I have fond memories of working in the "back shop" on Thursdays at the Fairbury Blade with you. You taught me to read backwards and upside-down. Dale Albee

My deepest sympathies. May the God of all comfort strengthen the entire family during this time of sorrow. Keep in mind that God keeps in his memory those whom we lose because they are precious in his eyes. (Psalms 116:15)
