Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a wonderful grandfather and kind soul. His sense of humour added greatly to our hunting trips in his younger days. R.I.P

And then there were 5!
Having accompanied you through three of your losses and hearing stories of the first, my heart is with those of you who are left as you say good-bye to your dad. When I recall conversations with him, one of the frequent phrases that comes to mind is "the whole nine yards". In looking up the origin of that expression I learned that as well as other suggestions, one is that it implies completeness. So if that's the case, I guess in almost ninety-one years, Bob has gone the full nine yards! May peace be with you all as you gather to reminisce and bid farewell.
