Barbara and Family - My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you. Bob was a wonderful person, husband, Dad and Grandfather. Pleasant memories of all of you go back many years to Sacred Heart, to living in trailers, attending religious instruction classes and City Hill and NHS. Always enjoyed seeing you around town. Love to all the Carons at this very difficult time. Dottie Daniels
