My condolences to all of Bob's family. it was with great sorrow that personal circumstances made it impossible to honor your request for my presence, and to officiate at the funeral. At the age og 86, and being in poor health, it was just not possible to comply with your request. Go with God an all you do. Rev. Clifford Janssen.
