  3. Dear Jessica, James, Grandsons and Family,

    I am deeply sorry of the loss of Bob, my heart pours out to you. He was a great man with a sense of humor, a mentor, the list goes on as you know. I have so many wonderful memories of being his Secretary at the Bank for so many years, which I will never forget. I am so blessed that we all kept in touch all these years. May he rest in peace! With my very deepest sympathy, Kathy Wielgus
