    It's hard to believe it's been 5 years since you passed.
    You were such a bigger than life man, there's a daily void for all of us.
    As always we will toast you with a cold Manhattan tonight. Extra cherries.

    My dearest Bob.. here I sit on the 20th anniversary of the 911 devastation. You would think time would soften the feelings but it feels as sharp as it did back then.

    Happy Anniversary my darling...sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago and sometimes it feels just like yesterday...our wedding day was the joining of two souls for eternity. So here I am 4 years after you left for Heaven still feeling the same as I did on that day. Loving you always...your devoted wife...Claudia

    Bobby and worked together at Bank of America, both of us as young bond traders with our futures ahead of us.
    He was a great guy, very popular, and a good friend. We lost touch over the years but it doesn't dim the memories.
    Did not know of his passing but you are right Claudia.
    He is in The Lord's Hands and his love .
    My condolences to you and the family.

    Dear Bob knowing that you and Robert are together with our Heavenly Father makes the memory of this day a little easier on my heart. We all miss you so much. Please continue to keep a close watch on your loving wife, my friend, Claudia. I know she is a strong and fierce lady, but I also know that in those quiet, silent moments she mourns for all the great times you two shared and her heart will forever be broken without you. Love, Candyland

    Well Bob here it is Sept 11 again and the sting of that day and Robert’s death still are heavy on my heart. It’s hard to believe 19 years have passed and the memories of him and all the others from the Cantor family remain fresh in my heart. So on this day I am proud to honor Robert again in the special way I have always done. It brings me happiness that you two are united once again with all the others in God’s Holy Place. I will continue to love you both today and always. My heart is aching today selfishly for myself but I know you are both safe and well in the arms of Jesus. In loving memory eternal always❤️ Claudia

    My darling Bob.. it may be 3 years but it still feels like yesterday. You were one in a million and will always be my one and only. I know you were with me today.. I had “that feeling” that only you and I knew. Thanks for always putting me on that pedestal. Loving you yesterday today and tomorrow❤️

There is not a day or an hour that goes by that I don't miss you..but I know you are free from pain and sickness and I praise God for that! I choose to remember only the wonderful memories we have made...so I wish you my one and only the happiest of anniversaries today! Until we meet again I will always love my best friend, my only love, ,my soul mate forever! "I THANK MY GOD FOR EVERY REMEMBRACE OF YOU" Phil.1:3

    As August 31 approaches and I think of your passing I reflect back as we often do to you and your sayings. You are missed as much today as ever. You left the most positive impression on so many. I know you are above watching over us all and are happy and illness free. For that I am happy but the human side of us all misses you dearly. I will do all within me to make sure Claudia is alright although I know she misses you daily but through God's grace she is able to carry on and know that one day you two will be joined once again. We will never stop hearing your words of wisdom and feeling the love that you poured out on us. We love you brother, Patti

    Happy 80th Birthday Dad.
    The four of us sang to you at dinner tonight. Peanut was certainly the loudest. As a matter of fact the first thing Liv said to me this morning was “mom, it’s your dads birthday.” And I know she doesn’t use the calendar in her phone, it’s her memory of the important people in her life. We miss love you and miss you so much.

    The Christmas season is certainly not the same without you, Rob and now Betsy. I always look at the picture of all of us in front of the tree at the club at the Villages. The girls are growing up so fast, I know you’d be so proud of them, they care and love one another so much. We miss you so much Dad.

    The hustle and bustle of Christmas is nearly over, and as I reflect on this holiday season you were missed terribly, but you are never far from our thoughts or our hearts.
    When I drove to work today one of your favorite songs was playing on the Elvis XM station, Hunk of Burning Love. I could see the 10 piece band playing, and you bringing the house down on the dance floor, it was such a memorable moment. You gave me many, us many.....
    Love always,

    We miss you all of the time, that goes without saying, but on holidays Thanksgiving it hits us the most. We will travel to West Chester to be with Betsy and her family,and remember and raise our glasses to you, George, John, Meema and Helen.
    I was looking through my albums the other day, and came across these photos
    from when you & Claudia visited us in Japan, seems like yesterday, but our outfits definitely say 90's.
    Love you so much,

    As I sit here I wonder how one can write a tribute for a man that was so much... There are no words to explain the depth of impression that you, Bob, left on so many. To this day I walk my daily routines and outings and am stopped in my steps when I hear words spoken and I say aloud... that is something Bob would say or that's what Bob said. We miss you dearly but knowing that you are with your Savior and healthy we can reflect on you and smile and the so many memories that you have left us with. We miss you friend, brother-in-law, protector, strong arm and all of the many roles that you graciously held. It has been a hard year for Claudia but knowing where you are you are still giving her strength through all of the memories and loved you two shared. We all would like to say we hold you dear in our hearts and we do but none as dear as your always and forever sweet wife Claudia.

    My dear husband..as I remember this day, I honor your son Robert.Though not of my blood, he was part of our life together and very special to me. It is 17 years later and I still feel like it was yesterday we lost many of our Cantor family..I can still see them all vividly alive in my eye. I pray my Precious Jesus had you all together once again in joyfulness. For you Bob I will love and miss you forever...for all the others I WILL NEVER FORGET. I carry you and Robert in my broken heart everyday. Love you both with all my being❤ Always YOUR DEVOTED WIFE Claudia

    Dad it's hard to think it's been a year, and for a number of reasons it just doesn't seem real. There are so many things I do or say, or people I see and I am forever reminded of you. I often find myself smirking, and looking up to the sky, wondering how you'd handle a situation, then I see you smiling back, and I know I've made the right decision. I hope you can hear me so I can let you know that you were and will forever be my superhero. Donna.

    Remembering you, Uncle Bob, as this day marks one year since you went home to be with the Lord. I am grateful for the guidance you gave me over the years. One of the fondest memories I have with you was sitting on the back steps (of the home I never should have bought) while you gave me sound financial advice and an action plan. I took your advice and ran with it, no matter how hard it was. God has blessed me 10 fold since that day. I also remember the love and support you showed through my mom's battle with cancer, both you and Claudia were there every step of the way. I am eternally grateful for you both. Lastly, You were a fine example of a husband and friend. In fact, men like you are the reason I held out so long before marrying. Men like you teach women not to settle, a valuable lesson. Again, I am grateful for your example and guidance.

    I have ecstatic joy knowing that in your last days here, you love for Christ had grown enormously. I am at perfect peace knowing that we will meet again in the presence of His glory. In the meanwhile, we will love and support your darling wife, my aunt, Claudia. I am forever grateful for you both.

    It has been a tough year my darling Bob. What carries me is my faith, our memories and the lessons you left for me! God has you home now and I have you in my heart. My life may be changed but my love for you will always be as strong as ever. Miss you my dear Bobby..always will. Love you beyond beyond!! Always your wife....❤Claudia

    Throughout my years of knowing you I cannot put into words how much you and Claudia have meant to me. We have been through some tough times and loss but also had many celebrations of life spent together. Wonderful memories that will never be forgotten. I thank you so much for all of your love, good advice and support and being such an important part of my life. You were there for me during some of the toughest times of my life. I know that you are still close by and watching over me every minute of the day.

    From the first day that we met at Jessica's first horse show I remember you and Claudia taking Jess and Justice under your wings and helping us in everyway possible, resulting in us having one of the best and most memorable experiences into the horse world. I remember thinking, "who are these people because I had never experienced such help and kindness from strangers".

    The rest is history. You will always be in my heart until we meet again in God's Kingdom you will always be my once in a lifetime friend.

    Your Candyland
