Dear Patty, I’m so sorry to hear of your sudden loss of your husband Bob. I met you many years ago through Jenny and our mutual gifts of special needs girls. Though we haven’t seen each other since that time I have always felt a deep connection. My prayers are with you and the family in this difficult time.

I was an eight year old little girl when my Mom took me shopping and told me I could pick out a present for my new little cousin Bobby. I remember as if it were yesterday. I thought would boys like the same things girls do? My final choice was a stuffed toy monkey. I think he enjoyed it! God bless you Bob. You made us so happy.

I am so sorry to learn of Bob's passing. I was fortunate to work with him for many years when he was Village Finance Manager and I was the Director of the Skokie Public Library. He was always friendly and helpful, particularly in arranging for the bonds for the Library's construction project in 2001. My condolences to his family members of whom he was so proud.

I am beyond devistated. Bob was a wonderful and kind man. He had a great demeanor and was always ready to help in any situation. He was also very supportive in people's endeavors. I worked with him for many years and we shared both personal and professional things that occured in our lives. He was easy to talk to and very comforting when things were troublesome. He had a way to put your mind at ease. He loved his work, but oh so loved his family and always shared stories, especially the ones about the dog. To me, he seemed like the ideal father and husband. Pat, my heart breaks for you and your entire family. This is such a huge loss. Please accept my deepest heartfelt thoughts and prayers. I know the next few weeks will be very hard on you. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss. Eternal be his memory.

Pat, I am deeply saddened to hear this news. Bob was the very first one to welcome me to Skokie Valley Baptist Church on July 12, 2015. Michael invited me to church and while he was at prayer before service, I was waiting outside, sitting on the bench, when Bob approached me. He welcomed me and was very kind. At a low point in my life, God put Bob in my path at the most perfect time. I can tell you that it helped influence my decision that day when Pastor Ed asked me to accept Christ as my Savior. Bob was genuinely straight forward in our conversation and I am forever thankful for meeting him that morning. I have been praying for you and your family during this time. I hope that your grief is not over-shadowed by your fond memories. My deepest condolences to you, John Scheinpflug
