Our sincere sympathies to your family on the loss of Bob.

Bob brought joy and good memories into the lives of his Peters cousins. The family gatherings and the written history would not have happened but for his energy, enthusiasm and positive attitude.
We regret that we are unable to join you in Fresno at this time.
Bob made our lives better.
He was appreciated and will be missed.

My sincere sympathies are with you and your family with the loss of Bob.

Words are inadequate to express the respect that I had for him and I feel the world is a little diminished with his passing.

Again my sincerest sympathies
