    Ginny and family,
    We were so very sorry to learn today that our dear friend Bob has passed away. A Bowdoin friendship of seventy years is one of life’s treasures. There are so many good memories of Bob from college days to reunions to retirement lunches at Luciano’s. We send our condolences to you, Ginny and to your family. May Bob rest in the Lord’s peace.
