Had the pleasure of working with Bob at the police station and also playing golf with him. He was a real gentleman. My condolences to his family.

To Diane, Rob and the entire Nascimento Family, my deepest and sincerest condolences. To my old friend, Bob, I kept saying that I had to get over to see you. I am so, so angry at myself and very sad that I never made it. We had some great times and a lot of laughs. I still tell the story of us hitting golf balls out the door of our hotel room in Maine and into the pool. The hotel and police didn't think it was as funny as we did. They just hadn't had as many Blue Mesa Margaritas, I guess. You never realize how much you miss someone until you can not see them any more. Today is that day. My heart is truly heavy. I pray that He has a golf course and a Mexican restaurant in heaven. Your game always needed work. Rest In Peace, my Friend.
