    A great wave of sorrow and pleasant memories came over me when I herd of Bob’s passing. I saw you two years ago when I visited Cypress Cove. I recall the same wit, the great smile and the pleasant demeanor that I so enjoyed for over 20 years of knowing you.
    I know that words are inadequate to express our feelings at moments like these, and I don’t have insights to help you grieve, I just hope that time and the great memories will work their magic and alleviate your pain. With love, Pedro (Pete) Rodriguez
