  3. Dear Linda, Rob, and Tammy,
    I am Bob’s Illinois cousin. In those early years as youngsters and then teens we had fun family times with Bob and his siblings. As I read condolences from folks that I don’t know it is obvious that Bob found his place in Rhode Island with a loving wife and children, family and friends. Bob, Rob, and Tammy visited us in Illinois when my children were young. That was the last time I saw him. You have been in our thoughts and prayers as you bid goodbye to a husband and Father that you loved so deeply. We will continue to remember you as future days unfold — when you long to hear his voice once more. Our love to you, Anna and Steve Stoller
