The purpose of life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave with a well-preserved body, but rather to Slide in Sideways, completely used up, yelling and screaming, what a ride!

"Happy Birthday Dad!
So weird you are not around.  I waited on the fellow that was so kind and compassionate when we took you to the hospital on that fateful day. He looked so familiar during the dinner, and I finally knew why. This was just a few days ago.  Thanks for sending him in!
Sure miss you!
Shelley"

"Oh my gosh Dad! A whole year! A whole year of reading about a play, or a movie I know you would enjoy, and reminding myself to tell you when I get home....... A whole year of fun events and competitions on my horse that I looked forward to sharing with you...... You always bring such enthusiasm to any topic.  I know you are with us, but I sure miss being able to talk about it all with you."

"Mr. Werley......the best Dad in the neighborhood!!!
The trips to the beach.....you were a great swimmer and rescued people in trouble. You and you wife included my sister Patti and I on many trips.
Baskin Robbins Ice Cream on our way home from the beach.
Your family spring trip to Palm Springs. Patti and I were included.
How did you know how horrible things were for my sister and I at home?  You were a Dad!
Your kind and caring way has never been forgotten during my lifetime.
You have always had a special place in my heart.
My only regret is that I could not find you to tell you in person how you influenced my life in the most positive way.
I will never forget your kind words and encouragement.
With Love and the promise that I have been paying it forward.
Mary Martin"

"Bob was a very special person in my life, I am sorry to hear of his passing . . . Back in the day his nickname was "Silk" I'm sure you can all equate to that! I just wish we had kept in touch . . .  A gentleman at all times with great knowledge of wine! I will toast my next glass to him!"

"I had the pleasure to work with Bob and have him as a dear friend for the past 13 years. I will never forget the day when I was complaining to him about how unhappy I was with my life at that time.  He said, "You need to buy as house."  He was right!  About two months later, I was moving into my new home.  I am SO thankful for the encouragment he gave me and will never forget it!  XOXOX"

"Bob was a such a great man! I had the pleasure to meet work with him and train him a few times a week in Coeur D Alene. His strength, determination to feel strong, fit and independent was an inspiration to me! Thank you for the time we shared and may your wonderful spirit live on! May God bless Bob and his family and friends."

"Bob and I had a great time doing car deals together.  He made it easy to sell his customer Honda's.  I think he was one of the sharpest car persons I worked with in my 41 years in the business.
I will really miss him and his humor.
What a great man!"

IN HIS INQUIRIES ABOUT THE VEHICLE HIS PEOPLE WANTED!

ULTIMATE PROFESSIONAL.
HE IS AND WILL BE MISSED.
GOD BLESS !"

"Bob and I worked together for 13 years. I loved his stories about Playing basketball and singing for "The Chairman". He was as you said always the Salesman. He did make a wonderful cheese cake that he one time gave me the recipe for. I think he left out something special as mine did not come out as good as his. He was agood man who loved his family and friends. I will miss talking to him."
