Not sure what to say?

Susan, You have our heartfelt condolences. Due to a mix up we were not able to attend services. As a boyhood friend from the early 1930s, I wanted to connect with Karl and Megan as well as to see Nancy and Janet again. I had stories to tell of our lives together in idyllic Skokie of its early existence. I'd like to hear from you. Rik Laiho, age 81. My email address is, [email protected]

Janet and Nancy - The Gudgeon family sends you our condolences. We moved next door to you in 1952. Our mother saw the obit for Bob. She will be 95 Labor Day weekend, when we will gather to celebrate. I have been in email contact with Rik and Ellen Leiho - also neighbors from Skokie. Rick has been filling me in on their (Rik's and Bob's) antics in Skokie. They were quite a crew!
But your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Sue Gudgeon Reilly

Please accept my deepest condolences on Bob's passing. I always enjoyed talking to him. His sense of humor and laugh will be fondly remembered. I know Jack will miss him too.

Dear Susan,

As you know Bob and I were best of friends from the '50s. You have our sympathy from Ginny and me here in Ohio.

Rikhard Laiho

Dear Susan,

Bob brightened our lives, too! We will miss him a lot.
Sadly, we will be away and will miss his funeral. We
will be thinking fondly of you and your family.

Pete & Jean Henderson

Dear Susan, Karl and Megan, Your family and I go way back to Crow Island School and WCC. I always enjoyed each and every one of you and send my sympathy. Bob was a wonderful person and will be missed by many.

Bob and his best friend Jack

Bob, Big Red, Mr. Anderson,
You have been so much to so many and yet always you. Thank you for your creativity, infectious laugh and dry humor. I hope you are tooling around in that big old station wagon with all of your trusty pups.
