    I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. Over the years I considered him not only a client but a dear friend. I will always remember our long discussions about politics and foreign policy we had over dinner and sharing many basketball games with him. I admired him greatly and am saddened by his loss.

    Dear Family of Bob, Craig and I were Bob\'s next door neighbors for several years, and enjoyed many conversations and an occasional dinner with Bob. I\'ve wondered over the last few years how he was doing. It\'s a God thing that I just happened across the obit announcement in the AJC. SO sorry for your loss!
