I knew Bob for so many years and will not ever forget watching him wave to Mary on his way to work. Grew up with the kids – I am so very sorry for your loss. Bob was a wonderful man and I’m sure will be truly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Several years ago, I had the privilege of being the social worker for Mary and Bob when Mary’s medical problems resulted in her being on home dialysis. And since Mary’s death, I have kept in contact with Bob via yearly Christmas greetings. He was a very sweet man and he was very proud of his family. I will miss receiving his ‘I am doing well’ messages each year.
We really liked Bob and we are sorry to see him go but he is in a better place and is with Mary again.
He was a very nice person and will be missed by all.
