Edna and Family:
Our deepest condolences to you and your family. We always enjoyed working with Bob over the years and he taught us what it met to be a good union member. I especially enjoyed those Sat morning work sessions that ended up at the "Blue". He was always fun to be around. We feel blessed to have known Bob. Regards Paul/Cheryl Button

Edna & family,

I was so sorry to hear about Bob. My brothers and sisters (Bob, Mike, Linda, Dan, Tim, and Tammy) and my sympathies go out to you and your family.

Even though Mom and Paul are gone now I remember hearing the stories mom would tell about the times you and Bob and Mom and Paul would get together, play cards and have breakfast together. It sounded like you had a lot of fun.

Our thoughts are with you at this time.

I loved Bob dearly he was one of the happiest caring loving fun loving man I have ever know. My love and prayers in this sad time. He wouldn't want you to be too sad and to remember him laughing ... I will never forget how he fooled me with his GORILLA suit at Holloween at the Gold Eagle.... God Bless you and ease your pain Gail
