Dear Diane, I was so saddened to hear about Bobby's passing. Although we did not see each other too often, he was always so kind and interested in my activities when we did visit. He loved people and enjoyed talking - what a gift! He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. I know you have a lifetime of happy memories. I can still remember all of us playing with the trains under Aunt Helen's and Uncle John's Christmas tree on Blvd East in Weehawken - and that was a very long time ago!!! Someone gave me this poem when Mahlon died and it has helped me a lot. I want to share it with you and the family. He Is Gone You can shed tears that he is gone; Or you can smile because he has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back; Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see him; Or you can be full of the love that you shared. You can trun your back on tomorrow and live yesterday; Or you can be happy for tomorrow beause of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he is gone; Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, Be empty and turn your back; Or you can do what he would want: Smile, open your eyes, love and go on. (David Harkins, 1981) Love, Carol Grupe Earle
