Warren and family: I was very sorry to learn of your grandfather's passing. It was an honor and privilege to have driven Bob to his medical appointments during the last couple of years. Just a wonderful person. I will miss spending time with Bob. My sincere condolences, Arnie Wensky, VA Volunteer Driver.
