Worked many years ago at Harbor Side Lodge with Bob, and remember many good talks and his great care and interaction with the residents. He always had a smile. Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday..may your memories, his love, advice and influence continue to guide you through the days ahead. Debbie Churchill
