    Bob was my first financial adviser and was always such a kind, patient and knowledgeable gentleman. My dad had recommended him and thought perhaps our personalities would get on well together. He was right. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at this difficult time. I have always been thankful that Bob came into my life.
