    I will truly miss my brother. We didn’t see each other often after reaching adulthood as our lives took us in different directions but I always cherished my youngest brother. I remember how Bob’s infectious smile often brought a smile to those around him. His loving wife Joan and his children will miss him too, but they can feel comforted knowing he is in good place and grateful that he enriched their lives.

    I’m deeply saddened today, but I strive to remember Bob back when he was a young boy growing up in our family–it was a challenge being the youngest of three boys and having three sisters as well, but Bob persevered. I miss you Bob — I wish were still here, but I know you’re looking down on us with a wonderful smile.

    Sending prayers of comfort to all of Bob’s family. I worked with Bob a few times with American Greetings and always enjoyed visiting with him. He loved his family very much. I am so glad I got to call him a friend. Rest in Peace Bob.

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your husband and father. I saw him not long ago and spoke with him at the store. I will remember him. I want you to know that my thoughts are with you.
