    The ” last of the good old boys” is so true..Growing up in the neighborhood of the garage, the brothers were guys you could talk to and trust and always get a little work or advice from, always there to help and treat you good and give you a little guidance too if you needed it. My father cared for those brothers and always told me they were good guys…..Rest in peace, Bob……..Penny and Sherri & family. I’m sorry and understand your emptiness of them both being gone may god bless you all
