Sorry, but I can't make it to today's service . The family knows me by Bobby or Bob, Jr.
I'd like to express my deepest condolence to the family for the loss of your Dad. He was really a wonderful man.
I was brokenhearted to hear the news.
I remember back in the day, when our dads were co-workers and pretty good friends.
Occasionally we would all hang out and barbecue, even jump in the pool. I remember your dad as a friendly, very approachable person, engaging, fun to talk to.
He knew I was a building contractor and would call me and give me work.
He will be missed and again I'm sorry for you loss.

-Bob

Peter,
Remembering happy times....trips to LL Bean, cook-outs by the pool, a weekend in Chatham, and many laughs at our cabin and at holiday family get-togethers. I always appreciated your obvious love of family and enjoyed your quirky sense of humor...When asked about dessert you always replied “this is my dessert,” as you hoisted your bud light!
May you be at peace.
Love Ed
