    I was a server at Egg and I for years and remember him and Bob coming in every Wednesday. He was one of my favorite customers. I'm so sorry to hear about his passing.

    My heartfelt condolences to the Bove Family for the loss of your dear love one Robert Sr. May Jehovah, the “God of all comfort” continue to provide your family the strength to endure during this very difficult time....Psalm 83:18 and 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.
