Lana and Family,

I am so sorry to read of Bob's death. He was a very nice man. I still remember the eighth grade trip we took to Six Flags. I will never forget that day. I  had so much fun with both of you! You have my sympathy and caring thoughts.

Lana and Family,

We don't get to chose when we lose those we love, keep all the happy memories and simply let the rest go.  I remember Bob as a great story teller.  If you said a key word he had a story to tell that related to it.  And he pretty much kept us in stitches laughiing.  He did not mind stating his opinion either.  He always treated my Mom with respect and gave her  a hug when he saw her.  He was proud of his children and grandchildren.  Sorry to hear he passed from cancer, tough battle to fight.

We never met your husband, but we were sorry to hear about his health problems and his passing.  We are sure that since you picked him, he was a great guy, husband, and father.

We loved your dad and mom.

Lana hope you remember me. Just wanted to tell you so sorry to hear about your husband. I met him several times at the bank, and he was such a nice man. That cancer is a very bad thing. And he was just a youngster. Condolencess to you and your family.
