Diana and family, we send our condolences for Bob’s passing. Our deceased parents Jim and Janice (Houston) enjoyed their visits to your home over the years. Love. Dorian and family, Indiana

- Dorian , Fort Wayne , IN

Diana, Mark, & Craig one of our greatest pleasures in life is knowing your family. Some of our fondest memories are quips from Bob over the fence, desperately tending to our front lawns during the Savannah summer, (being jointly annoyed at cars parked in front of our houses), learning the art of smoking meat (I have been an avid smoker ever since) and time on the Land. Time with Bob and your family at The land is special to my whole extended family, my girls learned to drive on the atvs, fish on the pond, and it was one of Vlads best memories, smoking cigars and shooting pistols off the dock with Bob. I hope they are both sitting on a dock, having a smoke and catching up. Our hearts hurt for your family’s loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Kent. Zuzanna, Rebecca and Erin.
