Betty and I were driving south thru the Adirondacks to visit our son Tom, when the car spun out and hit a snow bank. We did not know how we were going to get the car out of the snow. And along came a VW driven by Bob Moore, and he offered to help. While the VW did not have enough power to remove our Lincoln, he found someone with a truck, and got us out of the snow bank. We will always remember Bob's concern and willingness to help. Bob will be missed by his friends neighbors and family.
