Condolence & Memory Journal

I just found out about your passing now, Bob. Frankie and I just heard about it from his buddy Roger in Peabody so long after you passed-on to glory. I looked it up online and found this memorial page, and I'm very glad that I finally know now whatever became of you. I had called your nursing home around the holidays when I got the info where you were from Elise, but they said you couldn't use the phone anymore. I was greatly disheartened and sensed that you may soon be at home with Lord. I couldn't get up there to see you but I really wish I could have. I'm really going to miss you a lot, but I will meet you in the Lord's domain soon enough when my purpose here is fulfilled. I cherished your friendship and thank you for your help, I learned a lot from you and enjoyed our many adventures together. I often felt like I was your co-pilot as you drove around a lot both near and far on business or for leisure, but in reality, God was always your true and greatest co-pilot and he came shining through you, to shine upon me and many others, too! I love you so much in the Lord, brother! Frankie's mom passed too, so let her know she is loved and missed also. Frankie, Elise, your sister Diane, sons Rocky, Michael, Joey, and I all truly miss you. Peace... until we meet again!
