    Dear Marilyn,

    My deepest sympathy goes out to you for our loss of Bob. What an impressive life he had. Filled with so much life and adventure, I remember seeing both of you on some of the organized bike rides you did even last summer thinking how I want to be riding as long as you and Bob have been.

    I also enjoyed his words of wisdom many times offered to me during my year as president in Rotary. We will miss him dearly every Tuesday.

    I am unfortunately unable to attend the funeral but my thoughts and wishes are with you, Marilyn, during this difficult time.
