  1. Dear Aunt Janet and family,
    We will be praying for you all as you grieve the loss of Uncle Bob. So many of our best memories were spent with you. Mom’s last words to me were, ‘The best is yet to come!’ When we had parted each visit she had spoken those words but then I knew that she was speaking of the grand experience of heaven. It is the hope we all have, being closer to reunion today than we were yesterday. Blessings.

  2. I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Bob on the Building Steering Committee at St. Mark’s Church. He was always so pleasant and professional–a great asset to our group. Bob was generous in sharing his time, talent and treasure with our parish. He will be deeply missed, but our beautiful church is part of his lasting legacy.

  3. Janet,
    With great condolence. I enjoyed working with Bob and especially playing golf with him. I appreciated his friendship.
    Barbara and I will be out of town Thursday thru Saturday and are sorry we’ll will miss the celebration of his life. But, we will be thinking and praying for you both.
    Barbra and Jim
