School Story

I remember sitting in class looking out the windows during the springtime wondering if the nice weather would continue until it was time to play tennis. It seems like most days, around 2:30pm the hot sun would cause the wind to blow. You would have to aim the tennis ball 20 feet outside the line and watch the wind blow it back into the court. It was crazy to play tennis in Vegas in the afternoons!

Bob was a good friend during our high school years.   He is remembered and missed.  Rest in peace.
