    DR.BOBBY, AS I CALLED YOU WHEN YOU PLAYED BALL FOR ME (FOOTBALL & BASEBALL), I CAN REMEMBER THE DETERMINATION YOU HAD AND NOW HAVE IN YOUR CAREER AS AN ACTOR. YOU WERE A CHAMPION ON THE TWO UNDEFEATED TEAMS IN BOTH SPORTS AND GAVE YOUR BEST TO LEARN IN BRONCO LEAGUE BASEBALL AND BOYS CLUB LEAGUE FOOTBALL. YOU PITCHED ONE BASEBALL GAME AS AN EIGHT YEAR OLD AND WENT ALL THE WAY IN A WIN. THEN YOU PLAYED HALFBACK IN FOOTBALL AND WAS A GREAT RUNNER THAT MADE GREAT RUNS ALL SEASON LONG AND ESPECIALLY IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.WHEN I HAD TO GO TO CALIFORNIA WHILE I WORKED FOR USAF I WOULD VISIT AND WE WOULD GO OUT TO EAT. YOU WERE WORKING HARD ON A NUMBER OF JOBS LEADING TO YOUR BIG BREAK IN ACTING. YOU HAVE APPLIED WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED INTO A GREAT ACTING CAREER AND I AM VERY PROUD OF YOU AND YOUR PRECIOUS WIFE, BARBARA AND YOUR TWO CHILDREN. GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS AND KEEP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. THE OLD COACH, REGGIE.
