It is so hard to find the words I want to say. I cannot comprehend that Bub is gone. My dear Aunt Evelyn joins me in expressing our sorrow. Bub was a favorite of ours and always will be. I have known him since he was a child (knew all of you) and loved having all of you come by and pick chesnuts! Our families go way back - I knew your grand parents and of course your mother and father. I remember when your parents built their home on the land my grand mother and great aunt sold to them. The Thurlow's, the Wentworth's and the Anderson's!! What lovely days those were. Patty Hewitt, Mike and I were always about having fun with one of you .......
I loved Bub's visits after he'd completed his work. How we'd chat and chat and laugh at local stories!
Bub's loss is so hard for you. I realize how you are still grieving over losing Patty. We know life isn't fair but I wish we weren't reminded of it so often.
I would love to get together with you and have a nice visit. I want to give you a hug ...... I couldn't go to Bub's service to give you a hug there. I wasn't plowed out yet.
Bub and you come to my mind everyday. My prayers are with you both and to Bub's daughters.
I will really miss him. Truly I will.
I know he liked to be called "Bob" but he will always be "Bub" to me. Hope he forgives me.
