    To The Family:

    The Ohio family are sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. We are also sorry we were not able to be present to pay tribute to Bob’s life. I hope the NY family was able to attend.

    Bob was the oldest followed by Donald, Mary and Judy. Some of those childhood stories that I have heard over the years are real doozies. You have to wonder how they survived.

    I didn’t know Bob as well as many of my other aunts and uncles. I was impressed to learn that he was a highly decorated veteran. I know Bob was troubled emotionally during much of his adult life, but he seemed to be a caring soul especially being attentive to Grandma’s needs.

    Deanna thank-you for keeping us informed.

    We’ll miss you Bob.

    Ohio Family
