Not sure what to say?

I have never met a more perfectly matched couple. So giving, so loving, so generous! Sorry you have to make this big adjustment, will keep you in our thoughts.
Joe and Elaine Fitch

Alspaugh Family, I worked at Vogt and Conant as an Administrative Secretary when it was on Bennington Avenue off West 130th and for a short time when they moved to the west side and then I left to raise my family. I remember Bob as a very friendly man. It sounds as if he had a very full life. I remembered the name as soon as I saw it. I am sorry to hear of his passing. I am sure he will be watching over you all.

Dear Joanne and family:
Caring thoughts are with you as you deal with the passing of Bob.
We have such fond memories of his love of laughter, great intellect, and generousity. He will be missed by all.
May God's love and the love of all your friends and family give you strength.

Words just cannot explain how saddened that I was to hear of the passing of Bob. He was so dear to my heart, even though I know he will be in heaven with one of his dearest friends Roger. I can just see the smile on Rogers's face when he see's he dear friend enter those pearly gates. Bob was one of the most generous people that I know and he has left such a lasting impression on this world that can never be earsed. He is loved more than you can ever be imagined. I love you...

Dear Joanne,
My heart cries each time I think of the loss of our dear friend. You and Bob have been dear friends for so many years. We will miss him so much. Our prayers are with you and the family.
love you


Kaaren and I were deeply saddened upon hearing of Bob's death. He was truly a treasure. We will never forget the "Twelve Days of Christmas" and the Wine Tastings at Torch Lake. What fun!

While we have not seen much of you in recent years, we never forgot you. May God bless you.

Joanne, so many fond memories of great times at both work and play. We will miss Bob. Our condolences to you and your family.

Dear Joanne and family. Ron and I were very sad to hear of Bob's passing. His caring and generosity is beyond words which I can describe. And although we have not seen or talked with eachother in the last few years, he will be forever in our hearts. Love to you all. He will be watching over us now.

Joanne & Family,

Lee joins me in our condolences and sympathy for you At Bob's death. Bob left a lasting and very positive impression on everyone with whom he was a friend, and his list of friends was, seemingly, endless! We enjoyed so many great times with you and Bob that we have missed as distance has created the inevitable wedge but never has it affected memories which are still vibrant and rich with experiences of which we recall with great joy. Bob will be missed by all...
