Sorry to hear of your loss.
Butch, Terri and Donna, I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Bob’s passing. I have such great memories of him and my times at your home.
I never once heard an unkind word about anyone form him. He was one of the most kind and generous people I have ever known. I also remember with the greatest of affection the times he spent with me during our many rabbit hunts, teaching me the finer points of listening to old “Queenie” on the chase.
In time, his memory will bring you comfort and peace for Uncle Bob was truly “one of the good guys”.
My thoughts, prayers and love are with each of you during this difficult time.
Your cuz, Tom
