Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since your passing. You built the addition onto our house that was desperately needed with 5 kids!! I’m guessing probably around 1975ish!

Dear Bob, Another birthday has come and I cannot believe our ages (I am now 80 years young.) You were the very first important "Bob" in my life. Then I restored my self esteem with Bob Donahue for over 20 happy years. My banker for many years was another Bob as is my apt. neighbor a caring Bob and now I am happy to have a high school classmate Big Bob in my life. However, you will always be the most important Bob of all! Love always, Lil sister Dusty

Julio...Life is good here in Texas, and only hope that you are riding high in the heavens. We miss you and your sense of humor.

                  STRENGTH IS LIFE
            For the strong have the right to rule
                    HONOR IS LIFE
        For with no honor one may as well be dead
                   LOYALTY IS LIFE
        For without one's clan one has no purpose
                   DEATH IS LIFE
            One should die as they have lived

Bob...You lived one Helluva Viking's Life. Love you forever!

Hi Karen.....Thinking of you and your family today. 

My Norwegian friend used to tease me (Stromberg is Swedish) with this Norwegian childhood verse.  When I think of this verse today I think of your Dad....he is that ONE Norweigan. Var Viking.

10.000 svenskene løp gjennom ugress jaget av en norsk! 

10,000 Swedes ran through the weeds chased by ONE NOrwegian.

I would also like to say to your Dad "takk" for a lovely daughter who became my friend.

Bob..a class act

January 15, 2013

It is hard to believe that Bob's passing was two years ago today!  His presence still lives on.  He was a wonderful man and a friend to all of us!  As friends of Cindy, we were family!  He was the resident parental figure.  When he and Fran attended Jazz Fest and met my parents, he and my dad were like two peas in a pod!  So many memories of Bob...he and Fran always getting to the Del Mar concerts early and setting up a wonderful spot for us...always being his smiling presence at all events.  One of my favorites is Jazz Fest in New Orleans after Katrina...we had a wonderful time!  He is missed and yet still present in spirit,,,,definitely a class act and glad and proud to have known him and called him a friend! 

Happy Anniversary!

June 8, 2011

Today (June 7th) would have been my parents’ 53rd wedding anniversary.  Their true love and commitment to each other in good times and bad is how I continue to envision all great marriages.  My hope is that all your relationships include love, faith, joy, kindness, trust, respect, laughter, support, patience, sharing, an appreciation of family and of each other’s unique gifts and abilities.  Thank you to everyone who contributes to this website with their memories and stories.   It means so much to us and we are grateful for so many wonderful friends and family!

Mom and Dad,

Thank you for being such incredible role models.  Happy Anniversary!!

Always and Forever,

Love, Cindy

Growing Up with Bob Jensen, my brother

February 28, 2011

Dear Friends,  I feel privileged to have had a brother who was fun, inspirational and caring.  As a teenager, it seemed special to know that there was someone older I could turn to if needed.  Not only did I love meeting all his teenage buddies, but he was there to teach me to drive a car when turning 18.  What a treat to tool around his bulbous big black Buick convertible.  Our family was always entertained with Bob's sense of humor as our sister Peggy was the perfect foil for his wisecracks and they could go on forever, unlike sisters Dotty and MJ who just enjoyed the entertainment.  We all enjoyed many family reunions at Fran and Bob's marvelous river property in Grand Island, NY.  I will never forget when he pulled my 12 year old son Karl all way round the island on water skiis!  He enjoyed my 3 sons while I loved his gorgeous daughters whom I appreciate more than ever!  I look forward to our heavenly reunion one day.  His nephews carry on the family tradition of loving motorcycles and I have to admit we have photos of my Dad as young man riding a cycle on Staten Island, NY.    Vaya con Dios Bob!  All my love, Dotty
