So sorry for your loss.
Outstanding memories
1966 four of us, Bob, Sharon, Marvin Bitler and I ( on visit from UK) on our way to a fair, took a bridge in Bobs black coupe and nearly lost the exhaust ( muffler )
1977 visiting the Hosacks in bicentennial year and sharing my birthday with Bob. It was a very large cake!! But you two did it proud.
In my thoughts,
