Rick loved to tells stories about the Burrs and the Hidlebaughs. They were like one big family. I did not know Bob, but sure heard lots of tales about all the boys. RIP Bob. Find Rick and Pete and have a laugh together

CandleI worked with Bob and became friends for a life time. I loved to hear his Storie about everything...mostly about his times at the Journal. One of my favorite things was to hear him laugh...I loved the sound of his laugh, so I always had to have a joke for Bob. I hope you are laughing in heaven. Hammer
