Messages of Condolence

  1. Our heart felt sympathies to Carole and all the family. We remember cousin Bob with such fond memories including the times we gathered at your home and shared laughter, great food and stories of faith. He was always so good to our family. We remember his kindness, generousity and great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed but we take comfort in the knowledge that he suffers no more and now lives in the presence of Jesus in a place of complete joy. Our prayers are for God’s peace and comfort to carry you through the days ahead and until we will all will be reunited in Heaven forever.

  2. So sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. My fondest memory of cousin “Buch”, as we knew him growing up, is when he was in the navy. He was home on leave and while visitig us gave me one of his sailor hats. I wore that hat all of the time for quite a while. I will miss his wonderful smile and kind words he carried him him always. My love and prayers to Carol and the children.

  3. Dear Carole & Family,

    We are so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. We remember how much we counted on Bobs help at the ZFH.
    He was a beloved & valuable member of our team for so many years. He is now a member of the Communion of Saints. Eternal rest, Bob.

    Love ya man,


  5. Dear Gentile Family,
    I’m sorry to hear about Bob passing away. Me and my mother have been praying and keeping him our thoughts since the day we found out he was sick. But even though he wasn’t doing good for some time he NEVER gave up. He fought and fought for himself and his family for as long as he could. although he is no longer with us you keep in mind that he is in a better place and no longer has to suffer. I will keep on praying for him and your family. And just remember to that he is in a better place.


    Faith Hageman

  6. Carol and family,

    I am so sorry you lost your husband and father. Though we just recently met at the hospital, we felt a connection with your family.
    You all have been in my prayers at that time and will continue.
