Joan, Joe & Jim,
I want to extend to all of you my sincere sympathy during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Bob was a real worker at the Markle Park and a credit to the community. I know he was a good husband, father and grandfather and a real inspiration to many. In the later years I could always see him at the 66 station downtown. I have always considered the Buroff's and Sutton families good friends. You all should so proud of him and the impact he had on many people.
