  3. Dear Anne,

    Though I knew Bob for a very short time, I enjoyed our time together. His enthusiasm for the land, and all things farming were welcome subjects of conversation. He was kind and patient with my bumblings. It was a privilege to know him. Sending you support and strength during this difficult time.
