Not sure what to say?

I am thinking about you and sending love.

I had just completed my voting for CTPF trustees and had sealed my ballot the morning of the RTAC Luncheon. Bob had my vote. I was surprised and saddened to learn of his loss.

My condolences to all members of his family, as well as his many colleagues and friends. I worked with him while I was a member of the Board of Directors of RTAC and broke bread with him at many RTAC and CTU retiree luncheons. He impressed as a decent, kind and gentle man. I will miss him.

I regret that I was unable to express my condolences in person. My sympathy to Carol and all of his family. Bob received many accolades in his life. He will be truly missed. Bob was always a gentleman and kind to everyone he met. He always had time to listen. Those who are no longer within the grasp of our hand have taken off their shoes to walk quietly in our hearts and in our thoughts. So he is not far away. We only need to listen. In my thoughts I shall always remember him as a kind...

Carol, please accept and extend to your family our deepest sympathy at your loss. Bob was an outgoing individual, well respected by his colleagues and a good neighbor. We will miss him,

I was really sorry to hear about Bobs passing.My sincere condolences to Renee and Helen.

My deepest sympathies to my dear friend Carol, daughters Elizabeth and Suzanne, and your entire family. My heart breaks for you, All.

A devoted Chicago Public School retiree who was an elected official of the pension fund will be greatly missed.

How distraught we all are in having to give our sympathies to Carol and the family on the loss of Bob.

He was one of the closest friends I ever had and over more than four decades we shared so many experiences, common beliefs and thousands miles of travel.

What a loving husband to Carol and a great father to the kids. Such a marvelous professional, a sensitive guy who always knew instinctively what to say and what to do.
