So sorry to hear Bob passed away Janet and Family. So glad I called about a year ago and got to talk to him. Bob was Phil Johnson’s best man when we married. Prayers for all of you. Many happy memories. -Joan Johnson
To Jan Myers and family, Dearest Jan, so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Dennis and I often talk about how we needed to stop by in Fishers and see you again. Many fond memories of Happy Hour gatherings at your lovely Valpo home. Then also stage coach ride and our trip together to Branson! Sorrowfully wish we had done more together. Days and years do pass quickly. We were all four on the same page politically which was fun!! God be with you and family as you share your many beautiful memories. Blessings always, -Lillie and Dennis Lauer
