Memories Timeline


  1. My sympathy to Bobs family. Always enjoyed his friendliness when seeing him around New Hampton. I first met Bob when working at Dr. Boedings office. May he rest in the spirit of Jesus.

  2. Bob was one of a kind. He always had a friendly word or a toot of the car horn when he saw you. Lawler won’t be quite the same without him. My sympathy to his family. Verna
