  22. I really enjoyed being in the Computer Class all those years, we had some fun times! Bob’s knowledge of the computer and the programs made it very worthwhile and his ingenuity and outgoing personality added so much. Thanks to Marilyn, too, for your presence and encouragement for everyone!

  23. Marilyn, I was truly saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. He will be truly missed, but I need not tell you of the many kindness and considerations he expressed in dealing with people. He was so knowledgeable and excelled in any task he undertook. I will continue to cherish the beautiful Rosary he gave to me when my oldest daughter passed five years ago. My heart bleeds for you and Jennifer in your great loss. I will keep you in my prayers and may God Bless you and keep you in His care. With love and condolences.
