    Thank you, "Uncle Bob" for all of the love and laughter you brought to our lives. And thank you too, for being there for our Mom in her time of need. You were a bright spot in her life, as well as ours. You have given all of us so many wonderful memories to share for the rest of our lives. We will be there for Aunt Carol and the rest of your family, whom we have grown to care for deeply. You are truly missed and will be remembered forever. Love, Pat
