I am a high school classmate of Bob's. In high school he was a hard worker, a great basketball player because he gave 100%.
Senior year he was voted the most handsome, the most popular and the most athletic. A group of us were fortunate to have lunch with him August 6th when he was in Cedar Rapids to visit his brother. Yesterday I went to mass online - St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans - Fr. Wm Maestri - who ended his homily saying "This is your time to return to the Lord's house. You know why? Because Heaven needs to celebrate this morning. The angels need to rejoice. And God will meet you, not with accusation, condemnation, disapproval - but with a warm embrace - welcoming you home from a foreign land. And Heaven will celebrate; the angels will rejoice." Enjoy it, Schoeb. We'll all join you when God has our party prepared.
