  2. Bob Michels says:

    Your family has my most sincere sympathies on the passing of Bob. I always enjoyed speaking to him and remember him when I was a paper-boy and he was my customer when he resided on N. Third St. Dennison…many years ago. It is great to have the memory of seeing him last Christmas surrounded by his family when Santa visited; it was obvious that he enjoyed that time. My blessings to all; may he rest in peace.
