Joy and Family,
Our sincere condolences. Your loss is shared by many beyond your Family circle, I'm sure many you have never met.
Though we haven't seen Bob for several years, since complications with his health prevented his active Legion involvement, we've missed him, asking for him at every opportunity. My husband Bill and I had enjoyed the pleasure of Comrade Bob's company at most Saturday night dinners of District B Conventions.
Looking back, I recall with appreciation, when in meetings, as Bob rose to speak, projecting this natural calm, remarkably, everyone actually stopped to listen, as he shared a profound piece of wisdom, or philosophical insight into a situation we were battling, or sometimes just to put us in our place, effectively. To me, Comrade Bob was one of the few able 'to see the forest through the trees'.

Our Dearest Joy. The news of Bob's passing reached Nashville Tennessee this morning and made us reflect Bob and yours journey. We wish we were there to hold and hug you Joy but that is not possible at this time. We are assured of the wonderful support of family and friends that have come into your life down through these years and will be there to fully support you Joy and the family. You have touched many lives including all those children at the school. Celebration of one's life is important and amidst the sorry and pain and tears may Wednesday's service do Bob justice. Condolences to Jeremy and Shayna and Christopher and Kristy and the grand-children. Thank you darling for being there for us always. Now may the God you serve princess keep you as the apple of His eye and in the palm of His hand all the days that He has given to you. Love you sweetie always Ray and Lynn. Nashville Tennessee.

My sincere condolence to you Joy and your children and grandchildren. Bob was an excellent District 5 Councillor and showed such leadership in his position. He will surely be missed as everyone always wanted him to chair the meetings when the Chief was out of town. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this very sad time.

Dear Joy, Bob's Children and Grandchildren... I am very deeply saddened to hear of Bob's passing. We have known each other and our families since elementary school, played sports together and became good friends and colleagues. Our work and political views may have differed on occasion but our love and respect as friends and colleagues remained constant. I will always remember your husband, father and gramppy as a true gentleman. You are in my prayers and thoughts as you absorb the loss of a wonderful loving man.
Sincerely, Dorothy.
