    Ricky, April, Val, Robin and the rest of the family, my thoughts are with you during this time. I loved Uncle Bob and use to tease him that he was like Dick Clark eternally youthful. He was my Driver’s Ed teacher in high school and was very patient with me never showing emotion even when I nearly collided with a mailbox. May you all find peace in the memories and know that this cousin is thinking of you all. Much love, Jeri
