A few photos of my brother Bob. He passed in 2012 and is missed every single day. Bob was originally from Memphis, Tn, but lived in Sarasota for the last 24 years of his life. He loved warm weather or rather hated the cold. 60 degrees was long john weather for Bob.
Bob was an artist. He designed and built beautiful and unique homes for 40 years. He was a life long guitar player who never quit searching for new and interesting music to play.
He had a great circle of friends in Florida who loved and looked after him, I will always be grateful to them all.
Elly May adopted Bob many years ago. When I went to Florida to settle his affairs, Elly and I became instant buds. She made the 900 mile journey to Memphis with me and has become a major part of the family. She does not seem to mind the cold winters.
She spends most days lounging in the back yard and every night on the foot of the bed… until it is time to come up and visit for her morning scratch and purr sessions. She is my living link to my brother Bob. Elly reminds me everyday we are just her staff and she really runs the show.
