I am deeply saddened that Mr. Bob has passed. Whenever I happened to bump into Mr. Bob and Ms. Betty after mass, and chat for a few minutes, I always walked away from that conversation in a better mood. Two of the sweetest people, they brightened my day and made me smile likely without even knowing. I thank God for loaning Mr. Bob to the world, even though it was for too short a time. He was indeed a class act.
