On behalf of myself and the WNYRHS, we offer our deepest sympathies to Mary and Bobs' family. Bob helped us through some tough years and we owe him many thanks for his support and friendship. Our memories of Bob will be cherished and we hope his legacy in some small way will live on with the WNYRHS and the history we have striven to preserve. May your memories of Bob always bring a smile to your heart - Stephan Kocsis - WNYHDC Curator
