Candle lit by Gary Fleming I've lost the best partner I could have ever asked for. Bob & I raised our families together, hunted, fished, vacationed and just about everything else. I feel tremendous loss now that he has left us. We'll see him again, but until then, I'll just have to paint them houses alone. Love to the whole family. Gary & Kay
