I remember playing the drums and dancing with him. He was a special man who adored his wife above all.
I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Bob and Lynn and Family, Please accept our sincere condolences in the loss of your father. We remember meeting him a few times. What a "peach of a guy". Your Mother will need you now more than ever. God bless each of you at this time and guide you in the days to come. Memories of the ones we love, and have loved us live forever in the heart.

Having Guss come into the bank to see me was the hi-light of my day! He was such a kind, sweet, gentle man who loved his Nina. Then it was Nina"s turn to look after "Gussie" as she so fondly referred to him. They shared a special love! My life is richer because of our friendship.

I will not make his service Friday, but I know my friend, Guss knew how much I loved him!
