So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. My husband knew him quite well from the Montachute Lodge in Worcester for several years. He always greeted you with a smile and was such a kind man. I'm sure he will be greatly missed. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to all of his love ones and friends. We were hoping to attend his services today, but mother nature is not being to kind on us to travel that far. We are with you in spirit.
Deepest sympathies,

Mr. Bloom was a great man (I spent my childhood growing up in Sterling next door to Seth, so he will always Mr. Bloom to me). He always had a great sense of humor and a contagious smile. He sparked my lifelong interest in computers. I haven't lived in Sterling for many years, but I always enjoyed visiting with Mr. & Mrs. Bloom when I am in town every year. I would always stop by thinking it would just be a quick hello and before I knew it a couple hours will have passed. Always a joy to spend time and talk with. Such a wonderful person he will be deeply missed. Anyone that had the privilege of knowing Mr. Bloom is a better person for it. My thoughts and love is with the family during this difficult time.
