    Our hearts are deeply saddened, but thankful Bob was courageous in letting his body be released from the pain he was suffering. Hard to have such a sweet man leave our presence. He always was smiling and loved his work at Wagner Pharmacy. Felt part of the Wright family as Bob's brother, Ed, was married to my sister, Janice. Peace will always be Bob's forever.

    Знаете ли вы? Битву русских дружин и монголо-татар возле леса отмечают сразу в трёх селениях. Видеоигру с простейшей графикой называли и шедевром, и троллингом. Издательство «Шиповник» было задумано для публикации сатиры, однако вместо неё печатало Лагерлёф, Бунина и Джерома Джерома. На идеологию национал-социализма оказали влияние русские эмигранты. Рассказ английского писателя был экранизирован в СССР раньше, чем опубликован его английский оригинал.
