Dear Kathy,
We are deeply saddened by the news of Bob's passing. Jody Pross called us to say she had read it in the paper. We are sure he is in a much better place. Our prayers are with you as you get through this most difficult time. Wally and I continue to plan to be at 'Camp' the last week of each month, so if you are in the area to visit be sure to see if we are there.

All our Love and Sympathy,
Linda & Wally Cook
