  1. Margaret Weis :

    I met Bob when I was a companion for a client at Garrison Green. He was the only one who would make her laugh as she couldn’t talk anymore. Bob was a very outgoing gentlemen and I will miss him at Friday bingos along with my client. We realized that my brother John Van Beeten (deceased) went to Vicount Bennett at the same time he did. It was awesome to relive those memories. Thank you. God Bless you Bob and family.
