Bob and I maintained contact for many years. Always a good source of information on many subjects. One of the items he did for my oldest Son, because of a medical condition, and residing in a State run residential home was to make sure he had a special yearly calendar made for him. This was done over a period of twenty years for photos supplied by me until Bob left us. A very generous gesture on his part. Bob's Son Edward has now carried on this warmth of giving.
