"Uncle Bob, you were a man who had a frequent smile and a hearty laugh.  I will always remember how you rolled out the red carpet for me and my siblings shorty after our move from Chicago by loading us into your Rambler station wagon along with your kids and taking us to the SF Zoo for a fun filled day!   See you again in heaven!"

You were a shining light to me, growing up.  You had such an open, generous heart that delighted in showing the love of God to everyone.

"How comforting to know that Bob now enjoys all those promises now come true. He has fought the good fight and finished the race well. He was never ashamed of the Gospel.

I was among the many CIBC'ers who was greeted by your wonderful smile, words of welcome and cool golden tan =).  You were the first person to show me how to serve as an usher by teaching me to take care of people, ensuring there were enough kleenex and cough drops and to ensure worship was always focused on God. God bless your family."
