Dear Bob, I am sorry to hear of Marilyn's passing and am with you in spirit. You have been a wonderful example of a caring, devoted husband. I was privileged to have you as my barber. God bless you always. With warmest regards, Brian & Kim Joseph

Thank you Bob for the opportunity to get to know you and Marilyn. Her beautiful smile, quick wit and beautiful heart. Both of you will forever be one of the perfect examples of true love in my heart and mind. Truly amazing to see her face light up at the mention of your name, your face lighten at first sight of her at the end of your day and the opportunity to witness how love shone brighter than all of the obstacles both of you faced. I hope all of your friends and family write down thoughts and memories of you and Marilyn together and separately and give them to your children. My grandmother's cousin collected stories of my Mom and exactly 34 years later, we still appreciate it. Thank you for inviting me into your lives and allowing me the opportunity to meet two incredible people.
