Janice and Family,
I’m sorry to hear of your loss. The brief times I met and spoke with Bob he was very pleasant and I know he made Janice’s world shine. Janice often spoke of their trips and activities they did together. Thank God you were able to share so many wonderful years and memories.

Janice and family,
I have known Bob since 5th grade at Rothsville School when we moved there in 1957. He was a faithful attendee of the reunions for the Class of 1964. Please know that you are in my prayers and ask that you feel the arms of Jesus holding you up at this time.

My deepest sympathies to your family. I know Bob will be missed greatly by everyone. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
