Warm thoughts and prayers. I have great memories of Bob. He was at the Big Buck Lodge for Brandon and McKenzie's wedding. The day before the wedding he needed a ride back to the lodge they were staying at. When I pulled in he wanted to chat. We sat there and talked for almost an hour. Jane came outside and seen us sitting there talking and approached the car. Bob said to me, "I guess I got to go". Climbing out of the car, he grabbed Jane's hand and they started dancing in the driveway. I watched them waltz around and hold her close for at least a minute. When he finished he waved as to say "that's how it's done". How beautiful it was to witness their love.
