Dear Aunt Jean, and Wonderly Cousins,
We will all certainly miss Uncle Bob being with us in person. But we all know one day we will all be reunited with all the loved ones to whom we have bid farewell in this life, and we will join them in our Heavenly Father’s home. May God surround and fill, protect, bless and comfort you in your loss.

Rick and Sandy Walleman

Aunt Jean and family, John and I would like to offer our sincere sympathy. Uncle Bob was a very special guy who will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He was blessed with a gentle spirit and a great personality, and he loved his family so much. I’m guessing Mom and Dad and Uncle Carmin already have greeted him and probably talked him into a card game by now! Rest in peace, Uncle Bob
Love, John and Suzette
