  1. I will miss Bob’s wonderful moustache, which could not hide his beaming smile joining his brilliant twinkling eyes. No matter how loud he spoke, I could not hear his voice as I could not see his lips. When I did get to catch his words, his accent was too thick for my part-Irish inherited ears, eventually I heard him. I look forward to remembering his tight hugs as I lifted my ears closer to hear him. And of the knowledge he taught me, of his wise words to impart, being welcomed, and cared about, is all wrapped up in his love. A true gentleman, noble in my world, and I am so very glad I got to meet and know you more, but certainly not earlier as when our paths had crossed during history.
    Loving and missing you so very much.
