    Kris, Family, and Friends: I hope you can find peace knowing that Bob has returned Home to be with God who gave him life, and is now in a state of never ending happiness with his Family and Friends who went before him. On of my greatest blessings was having Bob as my dear friend for all these years.

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can help in any way. In sympathy – Pete & Mary

    Kris, Family and Friends – Bob made the world a better place with his pleasant, caring, helpful disposition and outlook. I will always remember and miss Bob’s wonderfully hardy laugh and cheerful smile. RIP Bob.

    May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. As the days and weeks pass, may you continue to feel the love and support of your friends and family and may Bob’s memories be a blessing.

    Couldn’t make it to the memeorial services but still wish to extend my heartfelt sympathies to family and friends. Our two mothers were childhood friends & Clara Shepherd was a bride’s maid at my mom’s wedding. Bob & I met at an early age at family visits and went together from Kindergarten through high school (Ryan ’69). He was one of the nicest people I’ve known..
