    I’ve known him for over 40 years and his passing hits me hard. I’m remembering all the good times, all the laughter and the great conversations we shared. He was a sweet guy with a soft heart. And so intelligent. I will miss my friend.

    Dear Glen, Bonnie, Michael, and Family. I am very sorry to hear of Robert‘s death. We were classmates and like so many from my hometown, I haven’t seen him since we left high school. I am proud of him for serving in the Army and I also have an interest in the history of war. Bluto and I could have had some great conversations about it, I even recently started learning the history behind Tiki.
    I am certain your sadness is deep, and I share it with you. I live in southern Minnesota, but I will spend April 17 next year thinking about your son and wishing him peace and happiness and freedom.
