My very dear friend, Mr Bob Helm, left us this afternoon around 4:00
pm.  He fought a valient, though relatively brief battle with the big C
-- bladder, to liver and many other areas.  I was so happy that the
lovely Ms Kay, Bob's wife of so many years, was able to be there today.
Bob still recognized those of us who were there, though it was difficult
for him to respond,  and we said our final goodbyes with love.
