My deepest sympathy go to you and your family for the loss of Bob. I knew him as a colleague and friend for many years, working together on a number of projects. I heard about "Prell boards" at Westinghouse Buffalo even before I met him. He was always easy to talk to and a friendly face in a crowded room. I am sad to know I won't be seeing him again.
