Mr. Puhr,

I have many wonderful memories of times

I spent with Nancy and you and Mrs. Puhr.

Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow

May your heart and soul find peace and comfort.

May the blessings of love be upon you, May its peace abide with you, May its essence illuminate your heart, now and forever more Blessing

Hold tight to memories for comfort, lean on your friends for strength and always remember how much you are cared about.

We pray the love of God enfolds you during your difficult times and he helps you heal with the passage of time.

At Mike and Nancy's apartment, celebrating Mike's 30th, Bob told my wife she looked like a young Natalie Wood.

While we only met Bob a couple of times in Redondo Beach, he was the life of the party. His quick wit and jovial attitude were great attributes and made everyone around him happy. He will always be in our memories and fond thoughts of happier times.

Aunt Helen, Nancy, John, and Bill - we are very sorry for your loss.

On the outside Bob was a fun, boisterous, challenging, intelligent, thought-provoki ng, and loud person to be around. He was the life of our family parties we would have on Grove St. He made an immediate and lasting impression on my family. And we would recall with lots of laughter and good spirits his presence. On the inside he was a kind and gentle person that truly cared for his family and friends. There is a void now that will be filled with lots of love and fond memories . . . . and with Bob now in heaven, I think God is relenting and switching from a Bears fan to a Packers fan.

He taught me everything. I remember how he used to take me to the batting cages to teach me how to hit.The proper stance, concentration. Keep your eye on the ball. Then he would get in the major league cage and hit everything like it was slow pitch and turn around while he was talking to me and then spin back around and hit one with one hand like it was nothing. I remember how he used to tell me to turn my music down when I played my guitar. Then when he saw the band play he said, " Now I know why you love this so much, play as much as you want." He would come to see the band play every chance he got. All the parties and he had the best time all the time. We're going to miss your presence but I know you'll be there whenever any of us need you. Rest in peace now and say hi to the other 12.

I can hear the noise coming from the Puhr side already. You're in my heart forever.

Love you,

Hotsey totsey, it just got a little louder in heaven, and a little quiter in our world. While it wil take some time to get used to life without the Living Legend of Fuller Park "the legend lives on", I don't think heaven will mind a few extra decibles of volume. Bob was like another father to the whole gang, and there was quite a gang. I don't ever remember gettin' kicked out of the Puhr house-close though. So without making this too long, you know we wish so much that we could be there at this time. We are there in spirit. God bless you all, and we love you all. Take care.

I always smile remembering "Uncle Bob".

At every gathering he had the bigest laugh.
