So sorry to hear of the passing of Bob. He was a nice man. I know his last years were made sweeter by the great grandchildren he got to know.

Bob and his wife Marguerite Ann were my Godparents. They were so good to always remember me on birthdays and holidays. They attended all my special occasions - confirmation, graduations, weddings, and so many other times throughout my life.Iam so grateful for their love and many kindnesses! Even though I've lived away from Valmeyerover 40 years now, I keptin touch with them with visits, cards, & letters. After Marguerite Ann passed, Iwould visit Bob athome or Oak Hill when I was back in Illinois. He always greeted me with his grin, a hug, and some stories. I have many fond loving memories of my times with Bob & Marguerite Ann. I'm comforted knowing they are together again.
