Add My Condolences

In loving memory of our Uncle Bob who we were so fortunate to have as our Uncle. I always admired his quick wit and sense of humor through the years. I loved hearing his stories about working for F. W. Woolworths. In fact that is where my Aunt Elaine met him. We were blessed with so many memories of our families getting together to celebrate joyous occasions. May you rest in peace Uncle Bob and know that you are loved by so many people! With love, June and family xoxox
