Dear Barbara & Family -
I'm so sorry for your loss. I used to work as a window clerk in the Campton Post Office and I remember Bob as being a very pleasant and friendly man. Alway a a smile and a nice greeting every time he came in...
Sometimes we are surprised at how many lives our loved ones touch in such a nice way.
Sincerely, Kathrine Piper
