  2. Margaret & Family,
    Bob was a prince of a guy and Ed and I were so glad when you finally moved into Forest Lake with us!
    My heart is sad for you. May God bless all of you and give you comfort.
    Love, Jean Dixon

  3. Margaret and Family, just learned of Bob’s passing. Please accept Bill’s and my sincere condolences. We often think of you especially at Christmas time when Unwrapping our Simpich Dolls. Your home was always so full of Holiday spirit. Many in St Augustine will miss Bob. Please know how very much we appreciated your friendship. Thinking of you.
