    Helen and Family,
    I’m saddened to have read this news today that Bob has passed. Prayers of peace and comfort for all of you at this time.
    Though it’s been many years since the days of all of us living in the Southend being very close knit, I always remember those days with laughter, joy and thankfulness.
    So many great memories of mine include Bob and you Helen; and of course Bobby, Tommy Tucker and Bryan as a baby.
    RIP Bob
    Love always,
    Wanda Fleming
