5 Condolences
  1. Dear Jan and Family,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Somehow I must have missed an earlier announcement of Bob’s death. Bob was one of the kindest, friendliest persons I ever met. It was such a pleasure to know him while we were at Heidelberg.
    I trust that his suffering is over and he is at peace. It is difficult for those left behind of a very loved family member and friend. Prayers for peace for you all. With much affection, Janet

  2. Life and Death are one, as are the river and the sea.

    I will listen for your laughter and will make your love of others a part of my life. I look forward to our tomorrows together, and the peace that we will share.

    Your friend, Bob

  3. Deb and Family-
    Not having the ability to hug your parent ( Grandparent/husband) again is hard to imagine. Knowing that the love you shared is still there in smiles when favorite memories come to you is what makes it easier over time. Sending a hug at this difficult time.

  4. So sorry for your loss. Bob was one of the nicest guys ever. Always said hello and honestly wanted to know how I was and how the rest of the family was. Will hold you in my prayers.

  5. Dearest Jan and Family:
    Bob and Jan have been a wonderful Blessing in my life. Will cherish every moment shared!!! From your penthouse neighbor. Always shared God’s loving spirit making our temporary journey until our final resting place called “Eternal Life” our forever home ❤️
