I am so sorry to request another correction. I am sure it was my mistake. I am not thinking clearly these days. Rob and I were married on the 2nd of Sept. and not the 1st. I did not have a military picture of Rob so I printed one from this site but still visit often to just look at him and check to see if anything has been added. Thank you again, Gloria Clintsman

Gloria,

I can well imagine these days are not easy for you. You've been through a tragic time and are facing the holidays without Bob. Janet and I want you to know we care. I will change that date right away.
