My deepest sympathy to Janet, and their children and their families, also to Ron and Janice, Rita and Wayne. I would love to be there for Bob's Memorial Service but I have family commitments and band concerts which need me to play the tuba this weekend. I have wonderful memories of Bob, his brothers, and Sister Rita. Bob was always into something and was most entertaining and tons of fun. I know he will be missed by everyone who was fortunate to know him, his love, his humor, jokes and pranks. Much love and many blessings to Bob's Family. May God bless you all at this time of sorrow and reflection.
