Relation: MSA Hospital

Bob was such a wonderful guy. He always presented himself with and smile and always seemed to be in a hurry to get the job done. I saw Bob a few years back mentioning the loss of his dear wife. When he retired he had big plans of traveling. I think he wanted to see the world by camper. I hope he had a chance to fulfill some of his dreams. Bob, I will think of you always with a beautiful smile and the enthusiasm in your voice. Rest in Peace my friend.
