    I first got to know Bob when I took Holy Communion to his mother at the house years ago. He was such a devoted, kind man. Always loved hearing him sing at Mass. It was a gift he shared every time he attended! We would also hear him sing at Life Care to himself, to the other residents. Always sang old song or devotional songs that ministered to residents and visitors alike. Rest in peace, Bob
