Dear Pat,

Our time of Grief here on earth is short lived when we know our Husbands knew JESUS, and we will be together in Heaven for an Eternity. Bob isn't gone, he just has a new address. Thank You JESUS for the Promise.

Bob was such a Great Uncle to me/mine, Always. Thank You Pat for making him a part of our Family. As You continue Your journey, remember, we have a Great Reunion waiting for us.

My family was so sorry to hear about Mr. Doremus' passing. He lived next door to my mother and was so kind to her and to all of us. He was also a friend to my Dad and visited him in the hospital before his passing. He was a wonderful neighbor!

Sincerely,
Margaret Pelham Roberts
