I barely knew Bob,only one of over 30 scattered cousins but stumbled onto a 1970 letter from him & decided to google him and found this. So sorry I didn't manage to get to know him more from this internet age of easy contacting, but feel I know him a bit from reading these messages. At 81 I grieve for all the younger cousins who are gone. I was Catherine Ann Naegelin, only daughter of Bob's father's older sister Marie. My condolences to all the family.
Mary Ann so sorry to hear of your loss. Bob was a great friend and will be missed by all. The boys still have a favorite Bob story to tell. You are in our thoughts an prayers.

Who's going to wake us up on 4th of July? Who's going to laugh loud at my jokes? Where is that light up Christmas tie? I know you can hear me Bob as we whisper, "We love you and we miss you!"
