I have known Bobby Don as long as I can remember. Possibly back to as early as the Summer of' '48 if not the Summer of '49. We started Cruise Street together in Ms Moore's homeroom. We spend the first ten years of our working life at Wurlitzer. We actually worked doing basically the same job for many of those years. Our sons went to school together 12 years at Corinth. Bob is my oldest friend. My world was a better place becasue you were in it. Thank you and RIP Bobby Don Harp.
