Dear Bobby, Bev and Donna,

Sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. What I remember most about Uncle Bob is his laugh and his sense of humor. He always seemed to me to be enjoying life (especially at the reunions).

Bev -- I saw the notice about your father's passing, and just wanted to tell you that you and your family are in our prayers. I've been thinking about you a lot lately, everyone from back in the day at Central really, as we look for classmates for '71 Reunion this year. When you get a chance, look us up on Facebook at Central Junior High -- Class of 1967, and catch up on what everyone has been doing.

Dear Donna, Bobby & Bev,

Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of your father. One of the memories I have of your dad is when he would bring home the "punched holes" from the punch cards used in the very first computers. He would bring home boxes full and we would use them as confetti - throwing them up in the air all over your patio. I will bet he did not enjoy cleaning up that mess. Cherish your memories and hold them dear in your heart.

Sincerely,
Vicki (Knepper) Thien-Stasko

Uncle Bob, when I think of you the first thing I see is that electric smile. Then comes your infectious laugh echoing in my mind and warming my heart. Thinking of you and Aunt Betty ALWAYS makes me smile. That is a beautiful legacy. You are loved and remembered. Donna, Bobby and Bev, we are so sorry for your loss.
Dawn (Anna) and Bink (Beck)

Dear Donna, Bev and Bobby,

I am your cousin, Jerrie Marie "Jo" Anna Pickard. How is that for a name? My sister and brother are Lou and Terry. I just wanted to say I am sorry that Uncle Bob is gone from this earth. I know his love for Jesus and that he is Home. I loved Uncle Bob and Aunt Betty. In my growing up years, they were always very kind to me and spent time with me. I always felt comfortable with them and felt accepted and loved. It meant more to me than I can express. After Aunt Betty died, Uncle Bob would send me Christmas cards and long notes. I looked forward to them every year and was impressed an Uncle would take that time. I hold his memory in my heart forever and wish to express my sympathy to all of you. Love from Your Cousin, "Jo" Pickard or Marie Pickard or Jerrie Pickard, one in the same
