I'll have those same 'vacant chair' emotions with Bob. He was often sitting on his chair on the back porch when I would come home. It was an automatic reflex to look up to see if he was there, especially if I got a whiff of his rum-soaked cigars. I'll fondly remember our many conversations back there. I'll miss ya buddy.

Aldona, Chris, Laura, Annette, and Mark,
We will truly miss Bob. He was always a joy to see. He loved all of you. It is a sad time for you and your families. Bob is with his Saviour in Paradise. I am sure that his mother was there to greet him. He is not alone.
Our prayers are with all of you in this time of sorrow. We remember the happy times of being with Bob and your family through the years.

Bob was one of the kindest human beings who walked on this earth.
My best memories of Bob was coach of the St. Monica\'s girls basketball team. Week after weeks of practices and games. Bob always encouraged the girls to give it all they got. He really earned his halo getting all those girls to focus!
My prayers are with your entire family during this sad time.

In Time of Sorrow
My you see God' light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark
May you always hear,even in your hour of sorrow, The gentle singingof the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone.
May you always remember when the shadows fall_
You do not walk alone
Love, Mary Beth

Thank you for all the wonderful childhood memories, Uncle Bob. I loved spending so much time with you, Auntie Aldona, Chrissy and Laura when I was a kid. And thanks for being such a great friend to my dad. He loves you very much.
