Aunt Rita, Paul, Bert, David, and Phil: Our deepest condolences for you loss. I remember Uncle Bob as my most fun uncle to be around as a kid (he would always do his Donald Duck impression on request), and grew to enjoy his wit and conversation much more as I grew older. He will be missed and remembered. I hope to see many of you this evening at the viewing.
