Dearest Aunt Marilyn and family, I wish I could be there with you at this time. My heart goes out to you all. I have such great memories of Uncle Bob. Such a wonderful man, loving father, great uncle and very importantly loving, caring husband.

You all are in my prayers and thoughts during this time. I hope you can celebrate what a brilliant light he was to the world. His years of service in family and community will shine on and he will continue to watch over all.

Love you.
