AS ROBERT BRENNEN'S OLDEST CHILD,AND OLDEST DAUGHTER, I WANT TO SAY MY FATHER HAD A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF TOTALLY UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR MY FAMILY AND MYSELF.HE TREATED US WITH RESPECT, DIGNITY, ADMIRATION AND PRIDE. HE FELT VERY PROUD THAT MY FAMILY HAD OUR OWN HOUSE, TOTALLY ACCOMPLISHED BY MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF ALONE.(WE WORKED VERY HARD TO DO THIS OURSELVES). HE WAS ALWAYS THERE IF I NEEDED HIS EVER SO ESTEEMED ADVICE AND WOULD VISIT ME WHEN NO ONE ELSE DID,(I'VE HAD A CHRONIC ILLNESS AND I'M SICK A GOOD DEAL OF THE TIME), ALWAYS BRINGING US BOTH "FRIES AND A BURGER" AND A COKE!!! HE WOULD ALWAYS TELL ME HOW PROUD HE WAS THAT OUR FAMILY ATTENDED CHURCH, MASS AND COMMUNION AND ASKED US TO ALWAYS REMAIN CLOSE TO GOD, WHICH WE DO TO A GREAT DEGREE. MY HUSBAND, NICK, MY 2 SONS, NICK AND MATT, AND MYSELF WILL FOREVER MISS HIM. BUT WE KNOW HE IS HERE WITH US ALWAYS. BYE, DAD WITH MUCH LOVE, YOUR "RN DAUGHTER" KATHLEEN, NICK, NICK AND MATT.WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!

Dear Brennan Family,
We are so saddened to learn of your father's passing and are keeping all of you in our prayers. We were away when we heard the news and were unable to pay our respects in person. Bob was one of the finest men I ever knew. He was my grade school football coach and though I had many coaches over the years, Bob was - by far - the very best of them all. Even to this day, I still try to emulate his calm demeanor when things are not going so well. My sincere condolences to you all but please take some solace knowing that your father was greatly loved and respected by many and his spirit lives on.

Dear Rose and Family,
We are deeply sorry for your loss. Although we all know that we must 'let go' of our loved one so that they can return to their maker, it is painful and devastating. Bob was a wonderful husband and father and seems to have been remembered by so many folks from his involvement in life. He will always live in your hearts. It will surely only be his physical presence that will be missed. We are delighted, Rose, that he got to share in YOUR special day not too long ago.

Dear Kathy, Nick, Nicky & Matthew,
You all have our deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved Father & Grandfather & Father-in -law. Kathy, I know he meant the world to you, and I am sorry for your loss but the consolation of knowing what a great father he was & having precious memories of your time here on earth together, will last a lifetime. As my friend told me on the death of my dear Mother, he lived his whole life with the goal of one day getting to Heaven, where he surely is now, with only God's peace & love surrounding him, no longer in pain. I know he is always in your heart !
Love,

Dear Rose & Family, One of the things that we will cherish in our lives are the beautiful thoughts and memories we have of Bob. He was a man of Integrity, Honesty, Kindness and above all, a Blessing from God. His deep faith and Love of God has made him the special man he truly was and always will be. His life and the person he was should be an inspiration to all. No matter when or where he touched our lives, a blessing was bestowed on us to cherish until we meet with him one day again. With Love & Condolences....

Rose and Family,
Death may have selfishly robbed you of the joys and. blessings of a husband and fathers presence but not of the countless memories and spiritual impact of his absence. You are all in my prayers and may Bob rest comfortably in the palms of HIS hands.
