Not sure what to say?

Today is March 1st and on that date I often think of Bob Quinn. After leaving Massachusetts for Florida and now Texas, I was saddened to learn (after Googling him) that the larger than life Bob Quinn passed away 7 years ago.
I worked for the president of the UMass system when Bob Quinn was chairman of the Board of Trustees. I used to enjoy watching him run these meetings.
When the Boston campus named the library after him, I had the pleasure of creating the program to the event...

Bob Quinn was a giant and well-loved by everyone. Bob will be sorely missed. My wife Melanie unfortunately did not have the chance to meet him as we were married on December 7, 2013.I consider his partner Jim Morris and his wife Mary Joyce great friends.Warmest personal regards, Chris Christopher Lewis Wellcome, Chairman The Wellcome Trust Foundation Boston / London Post Office Box 100Reading, MA 01867P

Condolensces to Andrea and family. I have just been reading of the loss of your father- 3 years later. Remembering you and your visit to Roscommon.

We. Bob, Myself and others, were attending our weekly lunch at Doyle's in J.P. and Bob was recounting some of his experienced when he was AG. I said to him: "Bob, unless you write those down, they will be lost when you go! "I can't. Not yet anyway! When can you" "When the Statue of Limitations runs out."

To the Quinn Family: I am late in hearing the news of Bob's death and I wish to express my condolescenes. I think that the last time I spoke to Bob was about 1980. At that time he had an office on Beacon Street. We sat and talked of Dorchester and he related to me a story of his youth. When he was just a toddler his sister and my mother [Margaret (Ramsey) Walsh] would take him to Upham's corner to the drug store and sit him on a stool at the ice cream counter. Needly to say my family always...

James 4:8 draw close to God and he will draw close to you. Sorry for the loss.

Our deepest sympathies on the passing of such a wonderful man. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Like a man whom his own mother keeps comforting,so I myself shall keep comforting you people..isa.66:13...condolence to the family
