    Bob was my dad and I loved him dearly. If I had questions about all kinds of things I could call and ask him.He taught me to work hard and reap the rewards. He got one last mushroom season in and that made him happy. He loved his kids and his grand kids and oh yes his cats. I hope he’s with mom and his other kids and grand kids celebrating their reunion. He was my rock and my hero even tho I knew he could be a bit of a turd! I will miss him always and he will always be in my heart. Love you Dad see you in the next chapter.
