So sorry to hear about the passing of a man I enjoyed communicating with over the past quarter century. What brought us together was his affiliation with the Kansas-Oklahoma-Missouri league in 1951. Over the years we became friends from a distance and in recent months I shared some information with him about the death of one of his boyhood friends which rekindled his contact with the Lenzini family. My sincerest condolences to the entire family.

Robert your Daddy was the sweetest most caring man. My Daddy loved him like a brother. I remember towards the end of my Dads life your Dad came to visit him. They hugged each other and told each other they loved the other. True lifetime friendship . Your Daddy was my Dads boss. They respected each other so much. I love you like a brother and my Daddy loved you like a son. God bless you and your family. You will be in our prayers. What a reunion Heaven must be having tonight!
