  • Bob and I we’re friends for as long as I can remember. We played as children, went to school together, played football together. Nearly every childhood memory has him in it. As we grew up we worked together nearly our entire adult lives. Some of our longest toughest days were the best, we would have long car rides home and talk about life, our hopes and our dreams. We had made a pact if we ever hit it big we would take care of the other. We just never knew we had already hit the jackpot when we became friends. I will miss him, until me meet again. Rest easy Bob
