I read about Big Bob with a sadness and joy in my heart . Joy because I always loved being around Big Bob. He could always make me laugh. When I grew up on Goldcrest we had many social occasions in the neighborhood and I had a wonderful childhood growing up in our neighborhood. I really got to know Big Bob when he became pals with our dad, Val. They had many adventures that bring a smile to my face. My heartfelt sympathies to all the Wilder family. I send love hugs and kisses.
