Bob, Robbie's Dad, Rae and Josh's Popsie, Hick's Dad/Bob.... knowing him for almost 25 years.
I could go into all the wonderful attributes of this fantastic man but anyone knowing him is quite familiar with them all. No - this is a personal, selfish post about receving the single BEST hugs I've every received in my life. If and when you were blessed enough to receive a hug from this wonderful dad and popsie, you felt that you were the most important person to this man for those couple of minutes (a few minutes if you were lucky). When he lost his beautiful Ag - she's the only reason I put lipstick on to this day - it was clear a part of him went with her. Yet he moved forward with strength, drive and compassion as the patriarc of his family filling in whatever gaps he could for his girls and grandchildren with her loss.
I truly loved Bob. He was a beautiful man inside and out. He'll obviously be missed by his family and friends. I will miss his smile, his humor, his hugs, and the joy of seeing him interact with his family. As they say in the Jewish religion "May his death be for a Memory" - All things spiritually beautiful.
I'm sure you're at peace and dancing with your Aggie.... You both were blessings to more people than you know. Love, Enid
