Lorraine, I am so sadden by the passing of Bob. My heart aches for you and I know today is going to be hard, you will get through it. Take your time, lean on your family and friends. Bob was such a wonderful man and always had something nice to say. He will be missed by all that knew him. I remember him handing me the microphone on Thursday nights for the Eleventh Hour Toast with a smile on his face and saying something cute like "You can do it" or "Don't worry if you mess up" or if I had messed up the week before saying "Are you going to mess this one up?" with a giggle.
Stay strong Lorraine and remember Bob will be eternally in your heart and memories.
