I remember Bob well. There were times when we would "drag the gut" in Burns because there wasn't a lot of anything else to do. That was a favorite pass time in those days. A bunch of us, along with Bob would head to a dance at Crane, Drewsey, or where ever else there was something going on. There was always drag racing at the "Y" in his 57 Chev. The 57 Chev was hot in those days.
At our age, we are lossing a lot of great folks.

I will miss going on picnics to Idlewild with Bob and with Mom. They both enjoyed it so much it made it twice as much fun!
I will miss you, Bob.
Your loving sister,
