My Dearest Aunt Vanessa, My heart goes out to you, Heather and Bobby. How can this happen? It is so hard to understand. I can hear Uncle Bob's laughter in my mind. He had a wonderful laugh! I will always remember his love that he had for his family and how quick he was to laugh. He was a wonderful man, a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and Uncle. He will be greatly missed. It is so hard to believe that he is gone. You are in my thoughts and in my prayers. Much Love, Jenny De Ruiter

Dear Vanessa, Heather, Bobby & Family,

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Bob. We know how much Bob loved you all. We will never forget his love of life and his wonderful laughter.

I still remember Bob & Walter at Disney Land in their idential Mickey Mouse shorts - so long ago but yet clearly remembered - what fun and happiness we all shared in years gone by!

Bob did not choose to leave his loved ones at such an early time of his life but I know that Bob would say to you all "I will always be with you in your hearts and memories and I will see you one day again when we unite in the Promised Land".

We pray that God will soon ease the sorrow you feel in your hearts at this sad time and replace it with all the wonderful memories of love, laughter & happines you all shared as a family.

With sincere friendship,
