    Donna and I send our sincerest condolenses. Bob was a great guy and a wonderful cousin. He always had such a great smile and giving personality. When we got together as kids we always had so much fun, whether it was fishing for perch at White Island, trying to catch his fastball in Quincy, or exploring up on Devils Rock in Braintree. They were all wonderful times.
    Living out west for for so long has limited the times that I got to see Bob. But any time I was back east and we got together, he always made me feel like I never left.
    My heart is very heavy with his passing. I will treasure my memories of him and smile.
