Mary, Michael and Girls--
It was a gift to me to have been acquainted with you and Bob, even if somewhat recently. First there was the Lillis High School connection--although I was gone before you started, it was fun to find someone with those roots! It has been a pleasure to share the faith with you and Bob! After a time or two, I learned never to call at 3 :00 PM, because Bob would never let me talk before the Rosary on the radio was finished ! Beautiful, Bob! I loved your values!
My sympathy in losing the visible company of this wonderful man. He's no doubt he is looking out for you still, and making sure the timing is right and phone calls don't interrupt your prayers.
With fond regards to all of you,

The world lost a truly great man in Bob. I know I speak for many when I say: "He was my Favorite Uncle". Honest, Loving, Friendly, and Wise is what comes to mind for me. One that I could always look up to. We're sure gonna miss ya Bob.
