    My heart is heavy with sadness at the loss of a very dear friend Bob and classmate BHS’63🎓. We’ve shared many phone calls and laughs over the past several years. I will miss hearing his voice. I hope his family knows how very proud he was of them. He boasted about them in every phone call and especially enjoyed his time with Cameron. My sincerest condolences to you all and please know he will always have a special place in my heart. R.I.P. Lt. Coppola 😇 ❤️‍🩹
