Mary and family: I'm so sorry to hear about Bob. First, I must say how much I respected Bob. Not only was he a terrific person, Bob was a great Co-worker. I was so fortunate to have Bob help train me in the Powerhouse at Kellogg's. Bob was a great friend, but more importantly a Christian Brother who prayed for me when I needed help, when I was business agent for BCTGM, Local 3-G, negotiating contracts for our members, Bob was praying for me! I will miss Bob and I will continue to pray for Mary.
