    Bob and I were stationed on the USS Sylvania together. And as mentioned by Ken Michaels, he was a great friend. We had many adventures together and while we were away from our families at holidays, we shared them together. The crew who laughed, drank, danced and hung out together is gathering slowly up in heaven. Soon, we will be together to play another game of pool and see your smile again, brother! Love you forever, Doug.
