    I worked with Bob at Mr. Fables on Alpine Avenue to help pay for college. I have many fond memories of him and found him to be funny, fair, honest and tough when he needed to be because he knew what he was doing. I am so sorry for your loss and I feel grateful to have known him at an important time in my life. May God comfort you all. --Ken Kline, Hamilton, Michigan
