75: Bob and Petra, Congratulations to a much loved couple with whom we have enjoyed so many wonderful times! From Montreux to Jacksonville, you have had an exciting life. You have enjoyed a beautiful family (including the fur kids), traveled to exciting places, enjoyed a wide circle of friends, given to the community wherever you lived, handled the bumps of life with the old attitude that "one can certainly make lemonade out of lemons" with both style and grace. You are our example! Petra, you are like my twin (the better one); sometimes, I think we could finish one another's sentences. AND to think, we both found men who will put up with our ever strong opinions and still love us -- slightly kidding here! :):) Bob, you are a jewel. Don't ever quit smoking that pipe; whenever we think of you, that image comes to mind along with your terrific dry sense of humor and intelligence. We cherish all our combo birthday and anniversary dinners—we loved going to T. Cook’s and Lon’s. And, the joint birthday luncheons and/or dinner for our May birthdays! Petra, you and I are both true "bulls - Taurus" for which our husbands would agree! :) AND, Bob and Tom could talk about airplanes forever!! Your always know where to find the very best and most fun restaurants. Thank you both for allowing us to count you amongst our dearest friends. No matter how long it is between our visits, we always pick up as though we had just seen one another yesterday. Enjoy your very special day and know that we send our love and congratulations to you both! Much love, Tom, Tommye and Honey Bunny
76: Dear Bob and Petra, Some memories to share...Bob and I went to first grade together and were buddies all through the school years. Your mom always had an apron on and called you "Bub", and your dad was a laid back cool dude always with a smile and a pipe. At age 18 we both learned to fly and terrorized Doylestown with our barn storming antics over Ed's Diner and all our friends’ homes. Great times. The picture of the the party at my house--I had just landed from a local flight when I saw cars parked on the front lawn and Albie, the airport owner, said "You better call home, I think there's a party going on at your place." He was right! What great friends we all were. My mom always stocked the back porch with beer and had a chalk board up where each of us "chalked one up" if we took one of her beers which were never-ending. All my buddies always called her "mom" and she loved it. The best memories are etched in my mind and will stay there and be enjoyed through eternity. I love you guys, George
