Elda: Even tho I have moved from Faribault, I try to keep up by checking the Daily News occasionally and was dismayed and sorry to see you have lost a son. We offer our condolences Eileen
Dear Karen and family.... We were very sad to read about your loss in the paper. Our prayers are with you all with your sudden loss.
Karen and family. I am in Kansas until Monday night so will not be able to attend the Celebration of Life for Bob. When I got the call from Pastor Bob, I was heartbroken for all of you. God has a plan for all of us, even though we don't always understand. Know that you have a very large family in Christ and we will always be there for you. You are and will be in our prayers. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you.
Dear Karen, What a surprise! Of course, I have so many wonderful memories. The one that stands out the most is how my first week at CSP, Bob came to my dorm room and gave me all sorts of good imformation. Aren't you glad we are Christians: we are going to see Bob again in heaven. My sympathy to you, your children, his parents, his siblings, and all the others who will miss him. Greg
Karen, Jan and I are so sad to hear this very unpleasant news. We apologize for not being able to be either at the wake or the funeral. I an headed for St. Louis for National Lutheran School Accreditation meetings. Please accept our condolences and convey them to your sons, Bob's parents, and Curt and Vickie. Blessings.
