Dear Gail and family,

My deepest sympathy to hear of Bob’s passing away. It has been 30 years since
Retiring from Union Trust and enjoyed the 16 years working with Bob. He was
a great person-remembering all the fun times with our delightful group of people
in the trust department and the delicious cheese cakes you made for our parties at the bank. Enjoyed knowing him and you as well.
With warm affection, Helen Merritt

Dear Gail, Missy and family,

I am sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I have very good memories of my few visits with Bob in the last years. Bob was warm and I enjoyed his conversation. I liked to listen to his stories and was so impressed by how well he was managing his illness. He will always be an inspiration to me.
May you feel supported in your time of grief.
