  15. This is to the entire Flynn family but most especially to Joanne. Bob loved each and every one of you so very much. We had many, many conversations since we met in the early 1980s and y’all always came up in our talks. He cannot be replaced but his precious memories with each of you can help fill the void he has left in everyone’s life. I have lost my best friend and hurt everyday but y’all have lost even more. He was the best human being, other than my parents, that I ever met. I do believe in God and I hope God let’s Bob see all of the out poring of love from his family and friends. I will miss you forever Bob!
