Randy & Rob, both of our Dad's were always the unofficial watch of the neighborhood. Kinda a polite way of saying they always knew what was going on and we all loved them for it. Now Mom & Bob on the other hand were constantly vying for whom would call to wish whom "happy birthday" first since they shared the same day. I will definitely miss those moments!

Bob and Randy,
Sorry to her about the loss of your dad, Mr. Krauss. I have many fond memories of spending time in his workshop, where he would show/teach me how to work with wood. He was always a kind person to me growing up next door.

Rob and Randy: My mind was thinking too fast for my typing in my last entry but I meant to say don't tell anyone Uncle Bob that he and Aunt Sue were my favorites. I just can't imagine a world without him. He was a wonderful and kind man, and I know you will miss him. Carry on Uncle Bob's legacy and MINGLE.

Bob was a great friend to both of us. A member of Pensacola Philaletic Society with us. Many good times and good fun we had together. Bob attended our 50th Wedding Anniversary Party and we all had a really good time together. We will miss him greatly and we wish all the family comfort and peace at this difficult time.
