Cheri, I am so saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. He was so supportive to me when I started teaching at Montour. His sense of humor and honesty about life was always enjoyable. Although it went too quickly, I know you had a wonderful 42 years together and hope retirement was good to you both. You married a good man. My prayers will be for you both tonight. God bless.
