Anita and family,

The Daniels' family has many fond memories of Bobby. I will only cite one: as a young teen, Bobby, Michael, Doreen and Bob visited our old rented house we used for snowmobiling. There was a mouse in the house and Bobby was the only "man" there at the time. Doreen insisted Bobby catch the mouse and "rescue" the girls. Bobby was scared of the mouse but did as his mother directed. The mouse ran up Bobby's right pant leg; he danced around screaming like a girl; and the mouse exited his left pant leg. With thoughts and prayers, Doris, George, Tina, Luci, and Donna Daniels

Anita, Joe, Tosha, Michael and families, we are thinking of you all at this very sad time. I have fond memories of my childhood with Bobby and I always looked forward to catching up with him and hearing about his adventures when our paths happened to cross in our adult years.

It is so hard to say goodbye to someone so special. We know that his presence will be deeply missed by many who knew him.

With Our Heartfelt Sympathy

AnIta and family,
It is very sad to hear of Bob's passing. Brenda and I wish to extend our deepest sympathies to all on your loss. Although we have grown apart over the years, I well remember the many adventures had while growing up next door to each other. Although we will not be able to attend the gathering for Bob on Saturday, our thoughts and best wishes will be with you all.

Norm and I were so sorry to hear about Bob. This happened too soon as you had many more roads to travel together.
Please know that we are thinking about you and have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Anita and family; I have so many wonderful childhood stories of Brenda, Paula, Alan, Bobby, Mike and I (and the many other Smith cousins) playing in Poppa and Nanny Smith's barn and property near Odessa. Those were always great days.

Bill and I are so sorry for your loss. Too young to leave us, but he certainly left a legacy of kindness, humor and generosity as seen in all these wonderful memories people have been sharing. Thinking of you Anita in this very difficult time.
