    To the Garvey family -
    I grew up with Bob as my next door neighbor. I always thought of him as more of a brother than a friend and looked up to him as a little kid. We kept in touch for many years, but life has a way of sometimes making us lose track of time and had not seen each other for more years than I want to admit. After hearing Bob had passed away, my first thought was how as a kid, I always thought he had the greatest hair in the world; funny what you remember about your friends. While I may not have seen much of him over the years, he was and will remain someone I owe a lot to, and will be someone who I know gave a lot to his friends and family. My condolences to all of you, and it should be easy to remember everything good about this man - because he was a good man.

    Uncle, we will miss you deeply. Always my favorite uncle, and I'm so glad Owen got to meet you and hear your "Donald Duck", it was the best around. Thank you for always making us smile. Dad and I will always share your love of the good old classic movies and we will always think of you when we watch TCM. We will always hold those fondest memories in our hearts. We love you.

    Uncle Bob - it was always fun being around you. I will miss your wisdom when it comes to gardening and I will miss hearing your tall tales (like the Hawaiian menehunes!). Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand. All my love Uncle.
    Love, Kristin Osweiler
