Words fail as always. I have happy memories of Aunt Bobby and warm summer days in Claverack. (It always seemed like we visited in the summer.) My thoughts are with you, Uncle Art, and with Bruce & Bill and all those who knew Aunt Bobby much better than I did. Losing friends is hard. Here’s passing on our love and support to you all in your loss. Steve & Carol
