I met Bob a little over 2 years ago and saw him a couple times a month at game nights. He seemed to be a good man who loved to tell bad puns and play good cards. We'll miss his groaners gentle wit. Be at peace Bob. May his memory be a blessing and balm to all who knew and loved him in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.
