I always remember his Avon jewelry for Christmas and him always teasing and talking to me. Nothing but good memories of Uncle Bob.

I will always remember his deep rumble of a laugh. Warm thoughts and memories of Uncle Bob.

Uncle Bob was always there at Holidays of youth.
When I was young I wrestled words or wits with him on the Holidays and of course he always won.
But on a day when I lost my big job, at a time when my
self-esteem was crushed and all my dreams were shattered.
Uncle Bob said: “I've lost many big opportunities in my
life and this will not be the last time life will disappoint
you David. You just have to start over and press on.”
It was at that moment, I realized the vast respect I had
for my Great Uncle. For his words breathed new life into
my self-confidence and I immediately was restored by his confidence in me. He was there for me the moment I needed him the most. I am glad he is part of my life. I have heard his words ringing in my ears many times since that day, whenever life disappoints me. I carry his influence with me forever.
