Mary, Abby, Gwen, and Chelsea,

My heart aches for your loss. Bob was a good neighbor and a good boss. But what I admired most was his devotion to you and the obvious enjoyment and pride he had in his family. And, it always helped, when we faced challenges at work and he reminded us, "yeah, but at least we aren't living on dirt floors.". In tough times, I still think of his admonishment and smile. I hope memories of his love and laughter bring you comfort.

Although I didn't get to work with Bob very often, but when our paths did cross, he was always pleasant and a happy go-lucky guy. He will be missed by all who had the opportunity to work with him.
