We are deeply saddened by the news of your father Bob's passing.
Although I only met your dad once or twice at one of our monthly meetings, I do remember him from our Tuesday night radio net. He would check into the net quite frequently and I found him to be someone I would like to know better. He impressed me and I am sure others as a fine, courteous individual. Our deepest condolences and we will keep him in our prayers.

We would like to send a donation in his memory; it will be sent to our National Quarter Century Wireless Association but if you have a specific choice, please let us know.

May God Bless You and your Family at this difficult time.
