I want to express my sincere sympathy to the family of Bob. I always enjoyed visiting with him wherever I met him. His smile was contagious. He had the janitorial contract for the office building where I was employed, and I always looked forward to him stopping in to visit. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.

With love and deepest sympathy to Bob's family at this very difficult time. Bob and Ira were very special people to me and I'm sure to so many people. There were none better. When I read this Bob's big smile came into my mind and I could see him and Ira side by side as I last remember seeing them.
