Serge-Charlotte and our beloved Steve!
You will never know just how much all your loving words, thoughts and prayers have meant to me and Bob.
First, let me say that I am feeling wonderful and almost back to my ol' self!? My doctors have felt that
my speedy recovery was nothing less than a "miracle", but I'm sure the LOVE I've felt from all of you is my
"miracle". Bob would copy and bring me the postings
in the hospital to boost my spirits and let me say
that reading them was the best medicine!
STEVE...what would we do without YOU?!? (not a darn thing!) Thank-you for keeping Ritchies' place well
taken care of and everyone informed...you are our
rock! Three cheers for Steve...hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray!!!
Bob & I want to wish everyone who visits this site
and all the people that they love, a wonderful time
this holiday season and Peace in the coming year.
Thanx again and we love you all!
Joanie & Bob
It is so good to see you up and going. I pray that you continue to heal and are keeping ole Bob in line
Our prayers will continue for you and we want to wish you and Bob a very Merry Christmas! Bless you both.
I want to also thank everyone for writing those kind words as all are very much appreciated. It is wonderful to know that we have a huge fan base and that you care very much. Bob and Joanie as you can see are very proud of the fans and the response is awesome!!
Thank you once again for the kind words Joanie & Bob. The team is strong as we all do our part for success.

I always cry when I see the movie La Bomba, right when Bob yells RITCHIE on the bridge it brakes my heart every time. I have always been worried about BOB, always wondered does he have a good life, but after seeing your web site it seems so with a loving wife Joanie, God bless you I pray your surgery was a sucess, may this note find hope you both are in good health. What did Bob do for living did he continue to draw from the movie he was awesome.
