To Bob's family......... I was so saddened to read of your father's death. Bob and Madge were friends of ours for many years and "our gang" had frequent parties which were hosted many times by your folks. Unfortunately, almost all of that group are gone now and life is very lonesome - so sorely missed. Bob took wonderful care of Madge and she felt blessed to have him as her husband. They were very proud of their family and related stories frequently and it was easy to tell how much they enjoyed and loved all of you. May they both rest in peace now. God bless you all.
