Dear Janet, Bryan and family,
Please accept our sympathy in this difficult time. I have fond memories of golfing with Bobby, John, Bryan, and Janet years ago and the holiday gatherings we all enjoyed. Since it was a number of years since we last saw each other I was glad to have spoken with him on the phone Christmas 2018. Peace...Dave and Rochelle
