Marsha, Nanette and Bobby: I read of Dad's passing and wish to send our condolences to you all. I remember "Bob" as I grew up on the island playing with you, Marsha in particular. I used to meet him at Hannaford and he'd always want to stop and talk a bit about the old days. He's at peace now. Let your memories of years gone by guide you through this time and help to ease the pain. Ann and Robin Reed
