Dear Toni & Robert,
It has been almost 1 year and I have put my words down on paper so many times just to put it aside as it was always too long a friendship story. I met Toni & Bob 39 yrs. ago when she came to work in the Beauty Parlor. Bob was quite particular with making friends and if he liked you, you knew it for he would do anything for you forever. Even as we moved to different states and didn't talk often,we could just continue our phone conversations like it was yesterday. Friendship...and I will miss it. Thank you Toni my good friend for bringing Bob into our lives.

Our Uncle Bob,

You were always ready with a funny joke or a silly expression, especially when the camera pointed in your direction.
Laughs, hugs and even tears, are memories we shared throughout the years.
I think I have you to thank for Santa visits when we were kids, I know we enjoyed it as much as you did.
John loved to sit with you, for a good long talk, with a coffee or a beer, and a cigarette or two.
Our children were lucky to spend time with you, they loved their Uncle Bob, as we all do!

Your sense of humor and kindness remain with us as we let you go. You always had a way to make us smile.

God Bless you in heaven, We love you always, Wendy, John, Caeli, Johnny, Brendan and Maeve

Dear Bob:
I have so many wonderful memories of you. I remember with fondness the times you came to the house to help Uncle Vinnie conquer a task; the two best are the making of our unique patio with the right side that dipped down, this was always a topic of conversation. The other memory, which I hold very dear is the time Uncle and I came to visit when he was on dialysis and you and Doll made all the arrangements for us at Anchor Court, including having all the dialysis supplies in place when we arrived. You and Doll have always been a special part of our lives, thank you for being you. Rest now, you deserve it. By the way please say hi to Uncle Vin, and Vincent Jr. Love, Aunt Angela

Bob: I have so many wonderful memories to share with you. You and Doll have always been so loving to me and Uncle Vinnie. One of the fond memories I have, was the time you and Uncle Vinnie made the PATIO in our backyard, mind you not a perfect patio but one that was unique--the patio that dipped down on the right side. It was a great conversation piece. I also recall the year Uncle Vinnie and I came down when he was on dialysis and how you and Doll made all our arrangements with Anchor Court and had all the dialysis supplies in our apartment before we came down. What I am trying to say is that you and Doll are two special people, and I am fortunate to have you in my life. Rest well,you deserve it. Oh by the way please say hi to Uncle Vinnie and take care of Vincent Jr. for me. Love, Aunt Angela.

Bob you're up in heaven smiling down on us Enjoying your beautiful tribute and saying don't you make a fuss. We saved your wheelbarrow which reminds us how you worked so hard, Taking so much care to perfectly cement Mom and Dad's yard. I remember lovingly the Bocci and card games and all the fun we had, Just being together always made us glad. Bob, you are like no other, We love you so much, our dear brother.. With all our love, Jeanne and Joe

Dear Toni and Robert,
Please accept my sympathy at this time. Losing someone you love is painful and life changing. Faith and friendship is your strength at life's passing.
I hope you take comfort in the shelter of your many friends.
Bob accepted me as a friend so easily. It makes my heart glad whenever I think of him. I know he holds a special place in many others' hearts and lives as well. It is a privelege to know the three of you as friends. Thank you.
Sincerely and with love,
Sarah

May the Scottish angels look over him.
