THIS IS A LETTER WRITTEN FOR BOB'S MEMORIAL SERVICE BY JOHN (BUDDY) DILLASHAW (some portions paraphrased due to inability to discern some of the content):

We were neighbors and grew up together from our early years.  Frog and I remained tight all through the years. I love him now as I always did and were I able, I would be at his beck and call  ~ in spirit, as well as in his life of pain.  I kiss everyone so long and my wish is for good health for all.

Signed:  JD
