Aunt Lillian and Family, Our deepest sympathy. Uncle Bob was a gentle, kind spirit. He was such a dear brother and uncle to all. Over the years he and my Dad enjoyed trying to trick all of us with their "twin identity". Happy memories of such a dear man. I know he was welcomed with open arms in heaven. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Lillian and family, Ruth and I are so sad to hear of Bob's passing. He was a sweet man, a dedicated brother, and a fun uncle. I like to think of all the brothers together again, but it is small consolation. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
