I always remember Uncle Bob as the "fun" uncle. When he showed up I didn't leave his side because that's where the party was going to be. One of my favorite memories was Christmas each year. Sissy had ample desserts and Uncle Bob and Uncle Bill would have an eating contest. I honestly don't remember who won but I was always amazed at the amount they both consumed.
I am so very sorry that I will not be able to attend the service because of quarantine. Sending love to Sarah, Dale, Scott, and Brandon.
