Condolence & Memory Journal

I will always have a special place for Uncle Bob in my heart, always enjoyed family get togethers as a kid. Also remember getting haircuts and him trying to get me to sit still long enough to comb through all the knots, if I was good I would get one of his famous tootsie rolls. To my Aunt Nancy, Cousins Greg, Chad, Robyn and their families you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sorry to hear about Bob. My sincere sympathy to Nancy and all his family. Bob and I go way back. We grew up in Harderwyk Church and as teenagers, we participated in a few pranks in the neighborhoods, some we got caught for and a few others we did not get caught for. I told Bob that someday at his funeral, I would say something about those pranks, but let's just forget it. After I retired and returned back to Holland, I would join Bob and all his cronies and friends at James St Inn at 1 00. Bob knew everybody and if you needed to know something about who was related to who, Bob usually knew. He was quite the character and I enjoyed getting to know him more in those retirement years,,, Rest in Peace, Buddy Wally Rooks
