    Dear Aunt Paula, Jon, Charlotte and your families .
    Uncle Bob always had a fun time or a joke to tell when you guys visited. Growing up I always looked forward to your visits. Uncle Bob's cycling adventures were amazing especially the miles he rode. I was proud to tell my step son about uncle Bob attending Millersville which is where Colin attended. We are blessed for having him in our family. Much love and peace to all of you.

    Years ago I met Bob while cycling. We were rolling along slowly and we started talking. The more we talked the more we laughed. He was a very good man, great stories, good man. Rest in peace Bob, keep pushing the big bicycle gears in the sky.
