    Carol and family, Thinking of you and your family. My daughter Casey, who works at the Bryan Center extends her sympathy also. I will always remember you and Bob when I think of the early days of Interfaith Assistance Ministries. You both touched many lives thru your volunteering here in our community. So glad my Mom and Dad got to be your neighbors at Indian Springs! May the Peace of Christ be with you now and forever. Sincerely, Kelly Case

    Dear Carol, I was saddened to learn of Bob's death. Having met him at IAM, I soon knew that he was a special man of character who had deep compassion for his fellowmen. He will be missed by all who were privileged to know him. Sincerely, Diane Halper

    Dear Carol: Since hearing about Bob's passing, mom has been reflecting on the nice friendship that developed so many years ago starting when Bob and my Dad were room-mates at St. Joseph's hospital. Our thoughts are with you during this sad time for you and your family.
