    Donna & Family! On behalf of my daughter Mary Brown and myself may we offer our deepest condolences in the loss of your husband Bob. May it help in some small way to know that others share in your loss. In our thoughts and prayers as you face the days ahead. RIP Bob & Hugs Donna.

  2. Jody and Josh…..I was so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. He was such a gentle man. Rob, Chris and I have so many fond memories of walking to Rose’s variety with our quarters to get penny candy and his endless supply of Pop Shop Pop for our nights of hide and seek down Tom Street and baseball games in my Grandma’s field. Tom Street kids were the luckiest kids ever!

  3. Josh and Family – So sorry to hear that your Father has passed away. Enjoy the memories of the good times with him.

  4. Donna and family I want to offer you my sincere condolences on the passing of Bob. He was a great man. I have many fond memories of him and I only wish that I could have visited all of you more often.
