Uncle Bob, you will live in my memory forever. It was always so much fun to be with you and that wonderful sense of humor that you had. I’ll always remember the wonderful Thanksgivings at Edith’s house and your football stories about your days on the gridiron when you were “Sticky Fingers Watson” , how we laughed about that. Thank you for always taking the time to take Michael fishing and hunting. The world is alittle less bright tonight because your no longer here, but heaven shines tonight because you have arrived home to be with your beloved Marion. Rest In Peace Uncle Bob
