"to receiving them in the mail. Nothing beat a phone call with Grandpa, even if it was for 30 seconds I learned something new. The greatest advice I ever got was the "Be good to your parents" I heard it on a weekly basis, but I now live by it. Family is number 1 and grandpa brought that to my attention. You will be missed dearly Papa, look down on us and keep us all in line. I love you!"

"392 characters surely can't sum up how I feel about Papa Bob, and what he has meant to me. He taught me more life lessons then I even realize. Not a day goes by that something doesn't remind me of him. He was a great guy and what I loved most, was how much the little things meant to him. Even with the internet, and email he still mailed newspaper articles to me every week. I looked forward"
