To the Berry family we are so sorry for your loss. Bob was a neighbor of ours for many years, a friend, someone you could always count on if you needed help and an absolute joy to be around. The world was a better place because of him.

To the Berry family, we are so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a neighbor and a friend for many years, someone you could always count on if you needed help and an absolute to pleasure to be around. The world was a better place because of him. I always enjoyed playing with him in 2 on 2 basketball against younger neighbors, as we usually won.
