Bob was a great friend. I worked with Bob at Garden Lane Nursery from 2004-08. He made every day wonderful with his sense of humor, his stories were so much fun to listen to. He never missed a day that he was asked to help in the greenhouses or deliver flowers or load a truck. I often find myself repeating some of his anecdotes and witty expressions. I will always remember and cherish those days I spent with him solving the world's problems with a cup of coffee in a greenhouse in the middle of winter. Rest in Peace my friend. You made an impact in my life and for that I'll always have a fondness.

My grandpa was one of the strongest hard working men I have known my whole life. I am glad he is in a much more peaceful place now! I love him and will never forget the times we had together while I was growing up.
