Not a great-uncle, more like an uncle, I have so many happy & fond memories of spending time with Uncle Bob, Aunt Hazel, Una & Bruce when we lived out in West Texas. Uncle Bob was definately an Alexander, had that "gift of gab". I loved to talk to him. Of all the brothers, he was most like my PaPa Earl which made me love him even more. My daddy considered Uncle Bob to be his "other brother" since they were so close in age and Daddy always enjoyed their visits. Uncle Bob was very special.
Aunt Hazel, Una, Bruce & families, I know you will miss him very much, so will I. I love you all, please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Donna
