Dear Dottie, My memories of Bob...letting drive in your red miatta. What a great time! I also remember him telling me when I got my senior pictures to make sure I had a professional pose taken. I guess this was to use to publicity! He was a great man! One, I know many people admired. I am sorry for your loss. May God be with you and your family during this time. With Much Love and Prayers, Amy, Don, Brennan and Neena Ellis

Dear Dot and Family, Our sincere sympathy during this sad time. Our family will always remember the time spent with both of you on your visits to Tipp! I enjoyed getting to know Bob during a "block Party" in our front yard. He was so proud of his family and seemed to be enjoying those golden years of retirement. We are so thankful you shared time with us during your visits.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Dottie George's phone call was not unexpected but still very sad and final. We are so sorry your loss. You and Bob had such a long and complete marriage for which you will treasure many memories. Avie and I talked about the dual involvement B and Jim had in both our marriages. And laughed about the time the guys took off from school and drove to Florida. That was a real "trip", so to speak. And nervy too. We were so sorry to not see you two in your Florida home but are just not Florida people. Our last visit to the state was in 1990! It was so good to see you two at some homecomings and the very nice dinner we had, courtesy of Bob, with Anne Linton serveral years ago. I know you will come north sometime to see family and hope we can arrange to meet somewhere for a visit. With our love and heartfelt condolences, Jim an Avie

Mr. Blakey has always been "one of my favorites." I still remember being so disappointed when your family moved away from Abington Rd. and I'm so happy you remained such true and treasured friends of my parents. I've often told my son Blake about you saying he has a great name because it's always attached to such great personalities. I have been blessed to know Mr. Blakey and know that Heaven became an even better place when he arrived. With much love, I send my thoughts and prayers, Amy
