Dorothy, Elizabeth, Barbara, and Family and Friends of Bob,

Having Bob and Dorothy and their family as next door neighbors growing up was a great experience. Bob would always greet us with What's up, Chief?. He would engage us in conversation which was genuine. Bob had a knack for making us feel special in a neighborhood that seemed to have hundreds of kids running around. He would show us his surveying tools and took the time to explain how they worked. He gave us our first job when he trusted us to take care of his beagles when he and the family went out of town. We were fascinated when he built a big outdoor pen and dog houses for the beagles, Chip and Blaze. Our backyards blended into each others in a forest and we spent countless hours horsing around in the woods. Bob never seemed to mind that we were running around on their property, sometimes getting his dogs to bark and howl. He was always fixing or building something and appeared to us to have every tool ever invented in his garage and basement. And on the first day of each summer vacation, Bob would always say It won't be long until school starts!. We loved the way he would kid around with us and were lucky to have such an interesting guy living next door.

We've also appreciated that our parents and the Murrys kept in touch and stayed good friends after they both moved away from Scheel Drive. Bob was very kind and encouraging once our Dad's illness slowed him down and we really appreciated that. In our parents home they have a corkboard full of photos of family members holding fish they had caught and among them are several pictures of Bob, smiling and holding up his big fish. We have good memories of Bob.

Rest in Peace Chief.

Daddy, so many memories, and so much love. My favorite: ice skating at night with our beagle puppy, Barney. You put a Coleman lantern on a broomstick.

Dear Daddy,

It has been one year today. We miss you so much and think of you often, especially when we are feeding the birds and tending the trees. You live on in our hearts.

Again, these words by Shakespeare come to mind when I think of you:

Since my dear soul was mistress of her choice/
And could of men distinguish her election,/ Sh' hath seal'd thee for herself, for thou has been/ As one in suff'ring all that suffers nothing,/
A man that Fortune's buffets and rewards/Hast ta'en with equal thanks; and blest are those/That they are not a pipe for Fortune's finger/To sound what stop she please./Give me that man/That is not passion's slave, and I will wear him/In my heart's core, ay in my heart of heart,/As I do thee.

Elizabeth
