    My siblings and I feel blessed that Uncle Bob played such an active role in our lives during our growing years and beyond. He was wonderful to be around and we have many wonderful memories to cherish. Thoughts of him always bring a smile. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his beautiful girls, Judy, Kim, Cindy, Karen, Lisa and Kelly. I wish I could be with you during this time. You are in my thoughts and in my heart. He is greatly missed. Love to all.
