My favorite childhood memories include my uncles: Bobbie Mueller, Roth, Randy, my Dad (Jack Mahle), Ed Mahle, Mike Mahle, and the whole gang at the family reunions out at Peidmont Lake. I can still recall all those good times and that is how is how I will remember Bobbie. Sorry I could not attend the service, but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this time. My deepest regards, Jim Mahle and family

Uncle Bob was a great man and a great Uncle. My Dad, Arthur “Art” Leo Mueller, and Mom, Anne Wocjik Mueller, used to drive up with us from Birmingham all the way to Wheeling, WV, every summer time when we were boys. Wheeling was my Dad’s birthplace and a second home to all of us. They called us “The Boys”, Art, Mike and Gus Mueller. I have great memories of our times in Wheeling with Uncle Bob, Aunt Mary, Uncle Roth, Aunt Mary Mildred, Dad, Mom, and Uncle Charlie and Aunt Zita. I knew Ed too. And we loved playing with all our cousins. Good, clean fun. When I look back over my lifetime, I realize that our parents, and our aunts and uncles, really were The Greatest Generation. They made up the fabric of a great and strong nation. They set a good example for all of us and taught us many life lessons which are valuable to this day, and I believe helped all of us to succeed in our careers. Great times, great memories, great people.

We pray for Uncle Bob, the repose of his soul. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, especially for all our family members who have passed before us, rest in peace. Amen.

Aunt Mary, you are the sweetest. Uncle Bob was a lucky (blessed) man. Sorry that we cannot be with you at this time. Know that we love you, and that you are in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers at this time. God bless you and be with you and your family.

Hello Kathy and Matt. Sorry for the loss of your Dad. He was the best. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. It may help to remember what Blessed Pier Giorgio said, that “Death is simply the transition from Life unto (Eternal) Life”.

“God bless us, everyone.” (Tiny Tim, A Christmas Carol)
