My sympathy is with ALL your family. The notice of both of you will be in the 98th Bomb Group's next News Letter. I do have an article I wrote titled...

I was Bob's paralegal 20+ years ago in Lodi. He was a genuine person whose passion and zest for life was contagious. Bob was meticulous in his work, but what I will remember most is the pride and love he had for his family. May you find comfort in each other and in your cherished memories. Rest easy, RBS.

Dear Bobbie and Family -

Chuck and I just heard about Bob's passing. We are so very sorry for your loss. Reading Bob's obituary, I wonder how he had time to do all that he did in just 71 years!

Dear Bobbie - Gail and I send you our heartfelt sympathies and condolences. We so enjoyed the times we spent with you and Bob, and will always remember him.

Several flying adventures to Baja, with a outboard motor and blowup boat in the seat between us...blowing up the boat, then out to sea bouncing thru the waves, we were going to catch a fish so "Big" we would have to jump overboard holding on to the side of the blowup, to create drag, (no gaff allowed with good reason), the islands, flying home with skin that looked like leather.....and always, always with his happy voice smiling.
WE shall raise a glass of village Mescal...

May your eternal rest be in the arms of Jesus Christ. May your loved one's find peace in knowing they will see you again.

Bobbie, Rosemarie and I extend our deepest sympathy for your loss. We both have such great memories of our time spent with the two of you at Oshkosh! Bob was a great friend and airplane partner and he will be missed. Our wish is that the wonderful memories you and Bob made together will soothe and heal the pain of his passing.
