My deepest sympathy for the loss of your Dad. Your family is in our prayers
To the Mann Family:
I had planned to attend Bob's Memorial Service tomorrow to pay my respect and express my sympathy to you. Unfortunately it doesn't appear the weather is going to cooperate. My husband, Dean, and I were fortunate to become friends of Bob and Mary at Immanuel. We also knew Mary from Home Hospital volunteering. Bob certainly served the Lord by his longtime service at Immanuel.
While Bob was a world traveler, we were not. We did a lot of traveling in the U.S. but had never been to NY City. God certainly blessed us when we decided to go on a trip with Civic Theater to New York and Bob and Mary were in the group. Dean was really anxious to visit Wall Street. We literally landed, left our luggage in the hotel and Bob had us on the Subway headed to Wall Street. Couldn't believe it! Thanks to Bob and Mary it was one of the greatest times we had and I still cherish the memories. It didn't seem it was too long afterwards that Mary and then Dean were both terminally ill.
I'm sure you have precious memories and Faith like your parents. God bless you with peace and comfort.
Immanuel UCC Chancel Choir wishes to express our sincere sympathy to the entire Mann family in the loss of Bob.
A long-time member of this group, Bob was always a bright light for us. Friendly and active in many endeavors he was a support to many wherever he was found. He will long be remembered for his smile and friendly ways.

Dear Mann Family
Your Dad was our first financial advisor many years ago and quickly became a dear and trusted friend. After my husband, Tom passed away, Bob was there to continue helping me through the difficult days, he also became a special friend & financial advisor to my mother Mary in Louisville KY.
We loved the stories he shared with us about his time in the Military in Japan. He was such an intelligent man.
We all loved Mary Mann as well...she was a precious lady!
Thank you Julie for keeping me in touch with your Dad when he moved up north. We missed him, but knew you were there to keep watch over him!
Our thought and prayers are with you all during this sad time of loss. Bob will always be remembered with love.
I just read Bob's obituary to the team at Sunrise and everyone had a story to tell about Bob. He always made everyone smile. Thank you for letting the Sunrise team care for Bob in the late stage of his life. He was a friend to all of us and we loved him very much. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.
