" I should have written this earlier, I guess I just couldn't accept the fact you were gone. I can't even remember our last conversation we had. All I have is this voicemail you left me when I was in the hospital after my surgery. You talked about how you couldn't wait to be back, and of course how you couldn't use your phone because you needed to go to college to learn how to use it haha. Your last words were I love you. It warms my heart to hear you say that. I appreciate those words so much more now.
You were always making people laugh and I loved that about you. I miss your phrases "they're selling like hot cakes!", I miss hearing your motorcycle pull up to the house and the dogs going crazy (well don't really miss that part), I miss your engagement in the weekly football games, I miss how even if you tried talking softly it would always project louder than maybe you anticipated, I miss hearing you sing and play the guitar, I miss all the things you did just out of the kindness of your heart such as fixing my car and making sure it was all ready and safe. Now Grandpa, I have your car and every time I drive it I know I'm safe. I know you'll watch over me, Cass, Dom, and Vannah. If you didn't know it already Grandpa, we all love you and miss you immensely. I've really just started to realize how much of an impact you had on our lives. Now all that is left are memories that I will treasure forever.
Fly high Grandpa and Rest In Peace."

"I was deeply sorry and saddened to hear that Bob passed away. His kindness and generosity, particularly in support of my sister, Ellen, was unfailing. It was a special treat for me to visit Bob and Ellen, have dinner, and listen to him as he entertained us. Memories of Bob at the horse farm showing me around make me smile.
He loved life, and his enthusiasm and charisma brightened everyone's day. I will always remember Bob for the loving and gentle man that he was, and I feel very fortunate to have known him.
With sincere sympathy, Mary Vurgaropulos Trombly"
