Dear Wilma:
I can’t tell you how much I will miss Uncle Bobby`s humor, wit and knowledge on so many topics.
He and I loved to share different authors and books to read. Many years ago I visited Bobby in Bozeman and he took me to a trail that led into the mountains where no man had been to. It was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. He was a true mountain man. His love for chocolate was unsurpassed. I am so sorry for your loss and hope time will take away the pain.

Much love
Candy
