Bud and I are going to miss you terribly, Cousin Bob. We had such great times together and hoped for many more fun adventures, like the one in the picture, eating fresh lobster in Maine! I know you are in Heaven with your Mom, and it's a better place for you being there. Rest in peace knowing that your Dad will be wrapped in love and support from many, many friends and family members. All our love.

My interaction with this outstanding person was mainly over email. I emailed him lots of times with NueMD-related issues. He always responded promptly, and never once left me hanging in there. Nobody can replace him at NueMD. I am so sorry. I am also glad I had the opportunity to meet him once. He was a gentleman in person as he was over email. Godspeed, Robert Geer!

My cousin Bob took on the role of being my uncle Bob and godfather to both my brother and me. He was the best uncle anyone could ask for. I still cannot believe this is happening. He was such an amazing person. My family and Maggie are going to miss him so much. I love you uncle Bob always and forever.

Robert, I will miss our meetings via Spark. You would spark me as GMJ and I would reply back to you GMR. I loved working with you because you made my job fun and took the time to help me. I will never forget our meeting in 2009. Thanks for being a great co worker and friend. You will be missed.
