"Bob, Cathy, Adam, Keely and Sasha:

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Uncle Bob will be missed, but we have so many fond memories that he will always be here. No one could ask for a better uncle. He was always willing to listen and always very giving.

Some of my best childhood memories are from Uncle Bob; my first airplane ride in a Ford Tri Plane at the air show to sitting on his lap for hours messing up his hair (what little he had) and then combing it all back into place.

John and I always looked forward to his visits when he would come to Florida.

Love to all of you!
John and Michele"
