To Bob's family,

Bob was a friend of mine since grade school. We went to E. H. Phillips Elementary right through Central Dauphin H.S. together. We often palled around with high school friends. The picture above of Bob with his smile is the Bob I will always remember. He wore that smile almost all of the time. You are all truly blessed to have had such a wonderful person I your family. I will miss Bob very much.
