To Ray Anne & Karen and all of the rest of our family we can't be there with. Kathy and I just viewed the very touching and well done tribute video you all did such a great job with it. Obviously, as my "Big Brother" I'm also heartbroken. I. Just spoke with him last week and I loved his "grumbling" about non of his sports being on tv. The past few days I've been gradually absorbing the hurt but also coming up with many good memories, Since I'm the last family member on Earth who knew him longer than anyone else my memories include a lot of our youth. Boy Scouts, sports together, many family moments and even living in bedrooms across from each other on the third floor of 237 River Street, Cambridge, Ma. .I remember him calling friends (even girls) on the old phone you dialed from Trowbridge 8603. After he enlisted in the Air Force I proudly wore his Boy Scout Explorer Jacket until it finally wore out. I could go on and on but it still hurts to realize we won't be sharing any future memories until we meet again in heaven. Bob was very proud of his family. You've all done well and he loved everyone of you. He especially loved the little ones, as Kathy and I do our kids, grandkids and great Grandkids. I'm proud to have been his little brother. Kathy and I still miss Betty who also we loved dearly but we're sure he's happy to be with her now. God Bless you all. Wish this horrible virus wasn't keeping us afar when we wanted to be nearby. All our love Uncle Gordie & Aunt Kathy
