So sorry to read of Dr. Bob's passing. He was a wonderful Dr., a good person, a terrific landlord, and for many years, I called him a friend. My condolences to the girls and their husbands.

MY name is Carl Bloss, Archivist emeritus at Bethany Children's Home. I became a friend to Bob at Phoebe Berks quite a few years ago. When Bob and Herman Lutz taught Pa Dutch classes - I assisted. We talked a lot about the old days on a farm with butchering, etc. He was a member of the Phoebe Writers of which I have just joined. I taught genealogy classes and we talked a lot about family and friends. We are very sorry for your loss. Respectfully, Carl and Norma Bloss
