To the many friends of the late Bob Dixon...

   The family of Bob Dixon [see obituary, July 26th edition] has set up a memorial fund called "Bob Dixon's Teddy Bears for Troubled Tots," with all donations going to the Monterey County Sheriff's Fund for special equipment. Contributions may be mailed to Monterey Bay Bank Account #01-01-1335; 1890 N. Main St.; Salinas, CA 93906.

   Bob was currently serving on the 1999 Monterey County Civil Grand Jury, and he loved his work. We also delivered Meals on Wheels in 1997 and 1998. You would have loved seeing him in his new Ford Mustang convertible with the top down in the California sunshine. He had already endeared himself to so many here; his goodness, honesty, and generosity inspired us all.
