Beverly, Karen and I are really sorry to hear about Bob. When we say you and him last summer outside of Clementines in South Haven, we thought that something might be wrong with his health. We're sorry we can't come to the visitation or funeral tomorrow. I have a doctors appointment that I really need to keep. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Aunt Jean,
Words can not begin to express our condolences and sympathy to you. Uncle Bob was truly a great man, who will be missed a great deal. We are blessed to have such wonderful memories of vacations and all the good times we all had together. You could always count on Uncle Bob for a joke or story to make you laugh, he had a gift for that. Much love to you.

Grandma -

Grandpa will always be in our hearts. He was great with the kids and we know he will always watch over you. He is with our Lord and is as healthy and happy as the day you met him. We'll never forget the way his face lit up when Joey called him "Papa" last week when we came to visit him.

My favorite memories are of feeding the turkeys at the old house and going to Busch Gardens. He always had a way to make us laugh.

You'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Lots of Love,

Joe and Sara Briseno

Aunt Jean, My heart and soul are with you today, and know that I am there with you in spirit even though I cannot be there in body. My love for you and Uncle Bob are with you always.Even though we have lost a great man, he has left us with so many memories, it is hard to think of them all. That smiling face and laughter will never be forgotten. We have all been truely blessed to have him in our lives! You know when I was a little girl, I told Judy Baily that I was going to marry that man, so its a good thing you scooped him up when you did.And I will never forget mowing the lawn for him, and the pennies on the railroad tracks. We all could not have asked for a better role model in our lives. All the fun we had and all the laughs we shared will be with us and help us through the rough road ahead. May God bless and comfort you. We love you
