    Dear Jean, Chuck and Family, We're SO sorry to hear of Bob's passing BUT we're SO glad we were able to visit with him in the nursing home on a trip to Ocala last July. It was great to reminisce, just talk and catch up on our lives over the last few months. It was fun to recall so many Friday nights having dinner at the Shriner's Club in R.I. and staying afterwards for more fun and conversation. PLEASE accept our thoughts AND prayers for everyone in your family AND if there is anything I can do in R.I. as far as the arrangements, just let me know. Love, Luci & Ken

    Dear Jean, Chuck and Family, SO sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I was glad we were able to visit him on our visit to Florida in July. Little did we know that would be the last time we would see him. I'm glad we were able to talk, reminisce, and catch up on our lives. I remember all the GREAT Friday nights at the Shriner's Club in Cranston, R.I. where Bob & Ruth joined us for dinner and then conversation afterwards.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time and if there is anything I can do concerning arrangements back in R.I., just let me know. Love, Luci & Ken
