Joyce, Brad and Maureen - Your Mom and Dad spent many years volunteering at Core Thrift Store and we missed them when they moved. BUT I have fond memories of working with both of them at Core. A memorial stone will be placed by Core in the park next to the store at sometime in the near future in his memory.

Met Bob several years ago while visiting the Stamford Cemetery where so many, many of my family are laid to rest. He took such wonderful care of things there including several improvements around and near my family's grave sites. Will miss seeing and talking with him when I visit. Sincere condolences to all.
