I truly loved Bob. I can’t believe he’s gone. He always said he would do anything for our school music department, and he proved it time and again. I will soooo miss his loud music blasting from the custodians’ office, his many texts containing awesome music finds, and his spot-on bitmojis. I will miss texting him real time videos of concerts I am enjoying. I will miss his frequent words of encouragement. I will miss his playing bass and guitar at our choir concerts. I will miss his smile. RIP, my dear friend.
