Going to miss you tons Uncle Bob! We had a lot of laughs. R.I.P. Uncle say hi to my mom for me.
I was thinking about Bob, I haven’t spoken to him in quite some time. We were neighbors in Maderia Beach Florida and when I tried a couple times to reach on Facebook messenger…I was afraid to Google his name, my wife did. I know losing a family member is difficult, I lost my younger brother a few weeks ago and my older sister about a year ago. My condolences to his remaining family, I only met a niece and that was only a couple times and I can’t remember her name. I enjoyed the good times we had when he lived here.
