My dear friend Bob Newman passed away last evening. Bob had been ill for some time and has at last found peace. Bob was my neighbor and friend for the past 10 years or so. When I moved to Springfield, my house was around the corner from Bob and we shared a common fence line. We would chat from time to time when we were out doing yard chores. This was a very comfortable relationship and I will miss him. I had several opportunities to assist Bob and Sara in doing some small repairs around their home and chatted with Bob each time. The one thing I remember about Bob is his statement when I said hello old man: His reply was ” my dad Made me a New Man” (Newman). Now I believe Bob is a New Man.
