Our Uncle Bob will be missed by all of us who loved him. He always greeted us "kids" with a smile and asked about our families. We are so saddened by the fact that he is the last of our Mother, Pat's siblings, so we will no longer see that same twinkle of the eye that all of Grandma Hope's and Grandpa Heme's children shared. We can only hope he is able to enjoy that Osborne humor with all of them now that he's left us. Lovingly, Debbie, BetteJo, Bart and Jeff
