    Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Bobby.  I also have fond memories playing catch with Uncle Bobby and traveling to Waterloo to visit our Aunt, Uncle and the Carmans from Waterloo.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your father.  I have a fond memory as a young child of Uncle Bobby hoisting me up onto his bicycle handlebars and riding down to the park in Waterloo.  He was probably still in high school!  Being the oldest grandchild I still remember Bob and Joann's wedding.  He passed far too young.
