Our deepest sympathy to Bob's family. A wonderful man, who gave me the opportunity to work for him. A true friend too.

Dearest Helen,Janie & Patty,

Please accept my sincere condolences to you and your extended family. Bob's passing is a sad event for me and the entire Drew Family. Knowing he is now comfortable, peaceful and in a better place makes it tolorable.

A wise man once told me " when good things happen to you ,look around. There were probably people out there that wanted (helped) it to happen.Bob was that for me.Always a smile,always good advice,always a friend.

I admired him , you too Helen , for building a respected successful company from scratch. The combined effort of Bob and Helen,strong work ethic,unequaled talent (maybe genius) and impecable integrity led to the success you deserve.You've shared your success with so many. There's been a quiet net under a lot of people. My admiration is shared by all the Drew Family and particularly his brothers - Dan,Bill Ed & Rich .

Helen it's obvious you're surrounded by a capable support group. However if there's anything we can do to make your life easier just let us know. We'll take a bullet for you

Love to all
