  • Condolences to Aunt Helen , Punky and Rob. Uncle Bob was a very kind, quiet man. My mother, Bob’s older sister Margery, so enjoyed his and Helen’s visits during her last year. He and Helen also made sure our Aunt Zel (who passed just after her 100th birthday!) had supplies and family visits before her death. Hope you have many happy memories to sustain you
    With great affection,
