I was devastated to read of Bob's death just now. Bob and I grew up in the same neighborhood. We attended Kindergarten through our Senior year together. We played baseball together in the Summer, had acorn fights with fellow class of '65 classmates, Kathy Engdahl and Bill Dahl. Bob and Bill's snow forts were legendary on West 25th Street! Bob and I got married at the Sophomore Sadie Hawkins Dance, but it was beautiful Winky who stole his heart so long ago.
Shortly before Bill Dahl passed away, he made me promise that I would contact Bob to let him know of his death. I contacted Bob and we shared stories of our childhood. We kept in touch with Christmas greetings after that every year. It was so wonderful to reconnect with Bob and Winky after so many years. God Bless you and keep you Bob. Thank you for being such a great friend so many, many years ago. I will never forget you. You will be in my heart forever.
