Laura, My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Our fathers are the first men in our lives and our heros. It is very difficult to say goodbye but I know my father is at peace now. Please know that others share in your loss. Rae Dawn Shipley

Very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I have many fond memories of Bob and his family being their next door neighbor in Long Branch.
