    Happy memories of the hospitality of Bob and Dorothy on Christmas back i the early 90’s. He had great love of the rosary and encouraged others to the same devotion. I will celebrate Mass for his eternal rest on January 18. God bless you, Dorothy and the rest of the family.

    He was an amazing caring wonderful gentleman. Always gave me hugs after church or school growing up. He will be missed dearly.
