I am so sorry to hear that Uncle Bob has passed away. I remember him for his massive coin collection. Whenever we visited he let me sort through jars of coins looking for wheat backs and other valuable coins. I just know he’s in heaven starting a new kind of coin collection. I will miss you Uncle Bob.

Your dad was a great friend and someone that gave me the guiding light many years ago. He will be sadly missed by all those that knew him and those that did not have missed an opportunity of a life time. He is now in heaven with the one person he thought the world of and one of the two loves of his life. It is a dark time now but remembering all the memories of him and those memories will bring the brightness back and put the joy back in your heart.
