    Bob, Lynn, Denise and families, My sincere sympathy in your loss. I'll always remember the yrs we lived in the apartment upstairs, and you lived downstairs, when our children were small. My 3 children all slept in the crib, I bought from you, that was yours, Lynn and Denise. I cherished your friendship then and will continue. Never forget "death is a part of life". Hugs to you all!
