Sending sympathy and love to Uncle Rob's children and families.

He has a special place in my heart that I cherish.

Janice Fritz Murphy Mar 29 2016 12:00 AM

Your Dad was always a very special person. When I was a young bride he always teased me about my love for the Yankees. Stub and I always enjoyed visiting with him. When I was teaching, he always told me to "cuff" his boys if they needed it, but they never really needed it. I really wanted to attend calling hours, but I am just getting over a bad sinus infection.and I don't dare to venture out. My thoughts are with all of you. Love, Eleanor Harvey
