  1. Cheryl and Family,
    We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Bobby’s passing. I always remember his visits when we were kids, especially when you came with him! Always fun!!
    I like to think that your Dad and my Mom are together again and and at peace, together with the parents that they lost so young.
    Sending thoughts, prayers and love,
    Your cousin, Donna and Family

    • I think the same about my dad and aunt Rene being together and seeing their parents. Always LOVED staying at your house when we came. Your parents were so sweet. Thank you.

  2. My deepest condolences on the passing of your Dad. My grandmother was his sister Beatrice. I remember him visiting when I was younger.
    He was always very nice to me.
