When I was a teenager and continuing into my early 20's, Bob and Betty were a welcome fixture at my parents house. I met Bob at my first job, age 13, at the Navy Exchange Warehouse (Navy PX). He was the delivery truck driver and I was the "helper". I learned later that he was working on the weekends to earn some extra money and to keep busy (I think) during the summer months. I would join him for lunch when he worked at the warehouse and enjoyed talking to him during our deliveries. He told me he knew my mother, which surprised me since I did not know him. I would soon be seeing him and his wife again in what would become a routine during the 1970's and early 1980's. They would come over on Friday as well as other times and enjoy their favorite beverages with my parents and whoever else decided to drop in that evening. My parents were welcoming and I never knew who would add to the party by stopping in. Bob and Betty would also come over on Christmas Eve to and wait with us until midnight to open presents. That became the standard for many years with an after Christmas Day brunch at their house. When I attended Penn State, Bob and Betty would join my parents in coming up on Saturdays for the football tailgating and the game. I always looked forward to these visits since I was on a very tight budget and they would come with food and of course some beer. During other times, Bob would join my father in coming up to get me for a visit home. Following graduation I focused on my career and, as happens during transitions, I lost the frequent contact with Bob and Betty. About the only contact was the yearly Christmas card, which usually included a calendar that I would place on my fridge or other item such as an appointment book. The years quickly passed and when the internet arrived I was able to get Bob's email. Since then I always enjoyed the items he sent which were usually jokes or other items that were amusing. I will miss these. I occasionally sent him things including updates on my family, career, etc.. When I was reassigned by my employer to New Jersey, I was lucky to have the opportunity to visit Bob during 2017 since I was staying at my sister's house while keeping my Connecticut home. Bob and I enjoyed a lunch one time and dinner another time (at Richies on County Line of course) and he purchased a souvenir glass for me to take home. I called a few months ago and spoke to Bob to see how he was, unfortunately this would end up being my last conversation with him. It was a pleasure to know him and it is a great sadness that I will no longer see or talk to him but can only remember.

Mr Robert's was not my elementary teacher but taught at Leary where I attended. He remembered me as a sweet little girl. Flash forward many years to last February when my son was in a horrific car accident and sustained traumatic brain injury, Mr Walter's reached out to me by phone twice during Dalton's hospital and rehabilitation stay in Atlanta to find out how we were doing. That really touched me, he was a very kind man and will be greatly missed.

One of my favorite teachers at Leary. I learned that in the spring the clock springs forward and in the fall it falls back. Will never forget where I learned that saying some 30 years ago. Rest In Peace Mr Walters.
