I've enjoyed working with Bob and his family over the years. He was the hardest working person I have ever met. My thoughts and prayers are with the Weise family.
Lucky! That is how we feel about Bob and his family. We were all so lucky to be a part of your life.
You are the only father I have ever known. The first time I hugged you it was like hugging a solid tree. I would say you were an oak tree that tried to protect everyone you loved from storms of life around us. Inside that tree was a heart of gold, inside the heart was a creamy filling you tried to hide but you couldn't help sharing.
What we will never forget is that voice..so strong and resolute like thunder. A voice that too liked to throw out a laugh with a boyish wink and grin behind it.
There aren't enough words to say all we could about you except,"It is now time for you to rest well. We love you and will miss you so much".
