    Rob and Mark: I want to send my sympathy. I knew your mom at WC; her friend, Truly Bryan Patton, was my roommate. Later I was in Greenville, NC when your folks were living in New Bern, and we got together a number of times. Your dad was a very kind man! I'm so sorry I never contacted him when he moved back to Hendersonville. I know your parents loved you dearly. - Pat Waldrop Buck

    Uncle Bob was the uncle who always made me smile as a little girl. I spent many a Thanksgiving dinners at his house playing in the yard while all the adult guys watched football! Uncle Bob had a great sense of humor and made all the kids laugh! Hugs and love to the family!
