To the Wood Family,
I was very fortunate to know Bob during the years he was involved with the Little Egg Harbor School District. Bob was somewhat of a mentor to me as well as Mrs. Wood. I will always remember Bob, he was an inspiration to me. My very deepest sympathies to all of you especially Mrs. Wood. I will keep you all and Bob in my prayers.
