  4. I will be unable to attend the memorial services tomorrow, but I wanted to express my condolences to you and to all of Bob’s family.
    Bob and I worked together for quite a few years at the old TAVS and travelled to many locations around the US on events. He was a great guy and I will miss his humor and especially his laugh.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you… God bless

  5. I am so sorry to hear about Bob and my thoughts are with you all.
    I have many fond memories of Bob, growing up with him around, going to many concerts and generally appreciating music together. I have only just come across a mixed tape yes, I still keep those things called cassettes that Bob made for me as a wedding gift. It had a collection of my favourite music from Steely Dan and Joni Mitchell. It was a wonderful gift, from a wonderful man. Again, my thought are with you all as I’m sure you have as many good memories as I do.
