From all those evenings of sharing stories and laughter in the booths of Lombardo's, we came to know and looked forward to being with Bob & Mary. They were never without a smile, always made room for others to join them and were truly sincere in their caring about our lives-family-and happiness. The memories of those days with them and Bill, Angie, Johnny, Louie & Louie have brought us much pleasure and we are thankful for having the opportunity to know them all, and to call them friends. They were very much a part of our lives.

Our thoughts, prayers and loving remembrances are with you all.
