Robert, Roberta and Mary Helen,

I was so sorry to hear about the death of your dad, my uncle Bob. He was truly a wonderful man who helped everyone. He was there for me during my baseball days and when i was growthing up. I have such wonderful memories of dinners at your mom and dads house, all the parties that we had and the great summer picnics that we all celebrated at. I know that he was a great uncle, a supper father and a wonderful husband. I know that both of them are in heaven today sharing a wonderful time togther. I know the emptiness that you feel now, but as long as you keep them in your heart you will always have them with you. Mary Helen, Robert and Roberta, my prayers and love are with you and your families.
