Bob was a dear person who I came to know as his home health therapist off/on for the last 4 years. I will always cherish the stories he told during our therapy sessions in an effort to distract him in order to complete a less-than-pleasant task therapy task. Little did I know I would learn some valuable life lessons along the way. He was a gruff teddy bear....and I will miss his sense of humor and funny little sayings......."It's good enough for the girls I go with" ~always a favorite answer to one of my questions. He loved his family and was loyal to his friends. My sympathies to all who knew him, and to his bird and companion as well!
