Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Joanne & Family, We were heartbroken to hear of the loss of Bob, our dear brother in law and uncle. Bob was a caring and kind man, who loved God, his family and his country. His love of God helped him through many of life's challenges. He showed his love for his country through his honorable service in the military. But his greatest love of all was for his family. Joanne, you were the love of his life. His children were his heart and soul. His grandchildren were his joy. Together, you and Bob raised a beautiful family that he was so proud of. Bob opened his heart and home to family and many friends. He always had a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and a joke on his lips to tell. Bob's gift to us all was Love and Laughter. It was his Legacy. May we carry his Legacy of Love and Laughter in our hearts and memories forever. All our love, Al, Barbara, Alisa, Johnny, Alfie, Brit, & Joe

Bob was truly one of the guys from the neighborhood. We played ball in the schoolyard and also, spring, a racing game. We also flipped baseball cards and I lost a lot of cards to Bob! Several years ago, I ran into him on Frankford Ave. It was like we never left the school yard. I hope to run into him again! Take care Joanne.
