  • Sue, Dylan,

    I can’t tell you how shocked and sad I was when I heard. I am so sorry. I really enjoyed Bob’s company and sense of humor. Few years back we were all at your house for a party, his retirement party I think. We got a little nonsensical. I told Bob. I dig his calm, cool demeanor. He said “Yeh, I know, its cool”! We were they only one’s laughing. But, ever since then he or I would arrive at a neighborhood cookout, crab feast, pool party or happy hour. I’d say “How’s it goin, cat”? His reply “Calm and Cool Burt”! I will miss him.

    God bless the Young family,
