    Uncle Bob was a very strong person, when I called him on his
    birthday in April, although not feeling well that day, he seemed very
    positive that he was going to be just fine. That will be my memory as we had a very nice visit . Your memories of fun times together will get you through this sad time. Remember he will always be with you!
