    I will miss my brother, Bob, everyday of my life. He was a "man's man." He lived for his family. I have the most love and respect that a brother could have for another. He was an honest, dependable and hardworking man. There is no words that I could continue with on how much I am going to miss my brother, Bob. How much of a loss it is for myself and my wife, Nancy.
    I know you are at peace with mom and dad. I will always miss and love you. Your loving brother, Neil XOXO

    My heart breaks at the thought of losing you Bobby. You were a shining light in all our lives. I will miss your quick wit, your beautiful smile, and your big bear hugs whenever I got to see you. I am and will always be blessed beyond measure to be your sister. I will see you in that glorious paradise you now call home when we meet one more time for all eternity and plenty of hugs! I love you Bobby!
