  • We are so sorry about your loss. Bob was a special and caring man. We got acquainted with Bob while our father, Steve was his roommate at Lourdes Hospital in late September/early October. Bob and Steve quickly connected with memories of places and people they shared in common when they were youths. They even shared the same doctor, Dr. Taylor. Bob always had a warm smile and something humorous to say when Steve’s family came to visit. Bob Johnson left a lasting impression on our family. We appreciate the company he provided for our father, Steve while they were roommates. They both looked out for one another and keep their spirits up. It was a small world when memories, stories and common people were shared and that’s what made our experience with Bob Johnson so special like the unique man he was.

    God Bless your family in the loss of your father.

    Always,

    Steve and Kathy O’Larey and Kyle

    Having just lost my mother MaryAnn Kimball 11-17-01 I know the pain you are experiencing. And it is during this time what comforts our hearts is to know people care. My prayers go out to your family that not only time but knowing others care will help lessen your sorrorw. I had met Mr. Johnson on a few occasions when my job associated me with Bob Johnson. Bob, I am so sorry that you lost your father. May God bless and watch over all of you during this difficult time.
