I am twenty-years-old and my brother, Mark, is sixteen. We have spent most of our childhood holidays--Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with Bob and Gretchen. I lived there several times with my family and went to school for a short time at the Lutheran school across from their house. I will always remember the fun Bob brought into my life. He always tried to make me laugh by him and my dad doing "Three Stooges" acts in front of us kids, "Nyuk, nyuk, nyck," and "Humm, wise guy." They would do the funniest Curly shuffle. We will always love him and remember his part in our lives. Mark especially remembers how he would sometimes eat in front of the TV by balancing his plate on his tummy and every Christmas he would always buy our dad a special "gag" gift. It was fun and we love him. Bob also stood for truth and was a dynamic believer in Christ and that is what made him the great person that he was.
