I have always had the greatest memories of Uncle Bob. He was funny and warm and always just a little mischievous.
Unfortunately, I hadn't seen him since my Dad's passing in 2004 but, I've thought of him often. Aunt Mary-Louise, I'm very sorry for Y'all's loss and I will pray for comfort and peace. Even from a distance, I love our Family.
Love always,
