    I have known Bob since he was a little boy. His sister is my dearest and closest friend and has been since 5 grade. It seems as if I spent more time at her house than my own, so I saw as much of Bob as I did my own brothers. He was a kind and loving son and brother and an all around good person. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

    My and my Dad had a father daughter bond that I can’t even describe into words. I owe it to him for showing me that life can be so fun, and to enjoy the outdoors and quality time with your loved ones. He was always wanting to go outside and ride bikes, play tennis, throw the football, you name it we did it! I miss you Dad everyday. I love you.

    We had 64 years on earth being brother and sister. I can remember so many times as youngsters we would play together and have to show dad and mom and their very patient friends our Irish Jig! 😅 There are many memories and the greatest gift to each other was the deep relationship formed between us in your latter years. God was with you and me through it all – leading, guiding, listening and loving.
    May you Rest In Peace and experience the healing and love that Heaven holds. I Love You. Til we meet again…
