Almost the first day we arrived in the mission, our next door neighbors,
Bob and Joann Bollig showed up at the door. 
They have been such wonderful neighbors. 
We have enjoyed our friendship- dinners, craft shows,  and lots of 
good conversations and just knowing we had 
friends next door. 
We will miss them and hope to see them out "west" some day for a visit.
We spent a wonderful evening on June 15, 2012 at the
Cheesecake Factory to say a fond farewell.

Last winter the gigantic, 60' bradford pear tree in the mission home front yard fell over 
from the heavy snow.  Unbeknownst to us, Bob came over and took a
couple of large pieces of the wood.  He is a master 
at working with woods.  He made us the most beautiful pens
from our very own mission home tree for us as departing gifts. 
We will treasure them.  See what wonderful neighbors they are. 

Joann and Bob
