    When I heard of Uncle Bob’s passing, it was as though I stopped breathing Aunt Lois, Debbie, Brian, Mike, and Cindy, may the memories you all share help with the emptiness and always be share with your children. Uncle Bob……all around wonderful man inside and out. Always had a Humphrey Bogart look, (to me) I remember stories told to me by Uncle Jim, one of them being what an awesome hockey player he once was.♡I’m saddened that you all have to go through such a loss. Keep your family together, and know he will ALWAYS be with each of you in spirit, and in different ways. Much love, respect to you all♡sending hugs, thoughts and prayers ♡AnnMarie
