My family and I are so deeply saddened by your loss. We have wonderful memories of Bob over the past 5 years. He was a very caring person with a great sense of humor and a deep devotion to his family, especially Kelley. He was so helpful in getting my new office furnished 3 years ago. I am grateful to still have his desk and will cherish it always. I know he is a wonderful place now, but understand how deeply he is missed. You have our deepest sympathies, The Karner Family
