It's very saddening to hear of the passing of our great Uncle Bob. I looked forward to seeing him at Christmas time. He was always smiling and had no shortage of funny jokes to tell. A shrewd businessman, loving husband, dedicated father, grandfather and great grandfather as well as being an amazing brother to my Nanna. He will be missed dearly.

To his wonderful family, I apologize that I will not be able to attend the services. I'm sending you all of my love and my deepest condolences during this difficult time.

Uncle Bob was only 14 years older then I am, so from the time that I was a little girl I have wonderful memories of a very very cool, and sweetest Uncle ever. Although I was young, I still remember watching him and his friend working on his gleaming, black Super Sport car when he was a teenager, outside my grandfathers home, with Duke of Earl playing on the radio, and later I was fortunate to work with him for many years. It is with a very heavy heart that I say goodbye, to not only the best Uncle that you could ever have, but so much more. Uncle Bob may not be here physically, but he'll always be with me.
