Dear Paula and family,

Bob was always a great friend to my dad and our whole family. He was always a pleasure to see. May his memory be a blessing. I've included a pic of Bob dancing at our wedding. He liked to have fun.

With love,

I remember the whole Yanover family.

When there was a fire in their home on Iola St. in Dorchester, Robie bunked with my family for a short time (~1950). We were family. Robie and Paula were in my year at Northeastern. I saw them last at our 50th Anniversary festivities (Golden Graduates at the 2013 graduation). Paula kept in touch over the years, and kept informed about my family. I have always appreciated her interest.

I have many fond memories.
