Bob was always one of my favorite patients. He would love to talk about the drug industry and my connection with Cleveland, Nancy’s home town. I will miss him. I’m happy he lived a long, constructive life!

Now Bob is with Nancy. He was a kind and gentle soul. Always a kind word. Rest in Peace Bob.
