I will always cherish the memories I have of Bobby in St Francis School where his mom worked in the office. As we all got older the memories just kept building. I always knew if I ever needed help with something I could always call Bobby and he would be there, no questions asked. Friendships that last that many years are rare. Bobby, I will miss you everyday, but I know you will be happy to see your buddies Mario and Tommy again. All three of them were incredible caring men. Mary, when you feel the sun on your face or see the sea grasses blow in the wind, that is Bobby reaching out to you. He will never leave you and always be there when you really need him.
I love you all and you are all in my prayers. Chris

I am still at a loss for words. I always think of Robert and Mary so fondly. I will always remember my honor to witness his immense devotion, love, and sense of caring and protection for her well-being and health. He was, and is, an inspiration! I am certain his love and care will transcend. My sincerest condolences.

Bob-
Mary just called me to tell me the horrible news. I am currently in a state of tremendous shock and sadness. What you wouldn't be surprised about, was how strong she was on the phone- she was comforting me! The love you showed for her and how you cared for her will be with me for a lifetime. I looked forward to your visits and loved talking with you about everything from policing to the Wiz to politics (and a little medicine too). I will miss your smile and warm embrace (ok, it was more like a bear hug!). You are a hero to me, your family and the nation. Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again!
