I was very sorry to hear of your father's passing. He was a really great man and he will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies to you all.
I was saddened to read of your husband's passing in today's Post Standard. I hope that memories of happy times bring you comfort during this sad time.
I think of you often and the fun we had during the early years of Make-A-Wish Foundation in the Hotel Syracuse. We are now in our own beautiful building in East Syracuse. Please come visit the next time you are in town.
Until we meet again, know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I work in the Events and Entertainment dept. for ISC.
Bob worked with us in the "old building 1-A" and I enjoyed talking to him about his fishing plans, what was biting, etc. He was a very hard worker, with a great sense of humor, and just a very cool guy. He actually reminded me of my own Dad allot- who passed years ago and I still miss every day. So it was a special honor for me to have known Bob. Peace be with you and may God Bless your entire family- now and always,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss of your Husband, Bob.
We & our whole family remember Bob for his kindnesses
& generosities to us & our entire family. They talk of him
always welcoming them when they came to visit & all the
favors he did for them. God be with him & you & your
Love, Corrinne & Hank & Family
