    Bob.. you were like a father to me, Carmen like a mother, and Bobby, Melissa and Monty were my brothers and sister.. I’ve known you since I was a very young boy who just moved here from Boston and you always treated me like your own.. I’d skip school and be at your house in the middle of the day and you’d say “Boy, get your butt to school”… I love you, I’m sorry I didn’t come see you more and please know that you and your (our) family have a huge place in my heart and always will..
