My most vivid and ever lasting memory of Kay and Bob will be from June, 2011. Kay and Bob welcomed me, my sister, Heather and my newborn nephew, Brady into their home for one of the most memorable Easter dinners I have ever had! Bob and Bill set up one big long table so that we could all sit together. We had a wonderful afternoon visiting and fussing over Brady and the Easter dinner was fantastic! I especially remember how much Kay enjoyed holding Brady that day! Their kindness and generosity will never be forgotten! Kay and Bob were so fortunate to spend the last many years of their lives surrounded by their loving family, especially sweet little Everett, and I know how much having Kay and Bob in their lives meant to all of them. Sending love and prayers to the Perone family and May Kay and Bob both Rest In Peace together again. ❤️❤️

Bob was one a kind! He was a good friend and mentor for almost fifty years. Linda, Catherine, Bob and I had a lot of good times in NJ, Venezuela & The Netherlands.
He will be missed by all here on earth. Rest assured, he's in a better place with Catherine at his side again!
May they both now rest in peace!

I will miss our phone calls every other day dear cousin. You were like a brother to me. We had many good times growing up. I still have the bracelet you made for me when you went to camp one summer. We had a lot to share since we were both only children. I'm glad I got to talk to you last week and you told me to have a great dinner, one of your favorites, gnocchi and the chef asked if you like it and wanted more. I know you were getting tired and your health failing, so rest in peace. Love you.
