"Uncle" Bob is so woven into memories throughout my life that its impossible to choose one to share. I think of him raving about fresh strawberries or butchering the Happy Birthday song or boisterously retelling favorite stories with my dad or lovingly teasing Bernie (always just out of range for getting swatted). Today I think he's doing all that again in heaven and thoroughly enjoying every favorite thing with the same vivacity he showed in life. He will live on in our memories and be dearly missed.
