Deepest condolences to Bob's family. He was a great and kind man who had a warm heart and gentle and friendly touch with all of the tenants at White Pine. He was a gentleman. He knew how to say "Hello" and "Thank You" to tenants. He helped tenants in the terrible snow storms and during the hot summers. He did wonders with the air conditioners.
Bob always had kind words and good advice; he was a property manager that tenants could talk to when they had problems at White Pine. He would see that problems were fixed. He wasn't snobbish and aloof. For many years, he made White Pine a clean and wonderful place to live. He and his dear wife, the late Pat Burket and their helper, the late Al Shipman, made White Pine, Lawrenceville's finest and most beautiful place to live.
White Pine will never be the same without Bob, Pat and Al, three early pioneers. Bob, Pat and Al made a big difference in the lives of so many people who lived in White Pine and they will never be gotten, though sadly missed. They made White Pine what it is today and it is hoped that the owners of White Pine will someday erect a plaque or plant a tree in memory and appreciation of Bob, Pat and Al. May God keep Bob, Pat and Al in his care and let each rest in heavenly peace for a job well done on this earth.
