I will miss our frequent chats…Bob will be missed, but we'll carry him in our hearts.
My Nana called him “Big Bear”…and we may have just called him Bob, but he was like a grandfather to me over the past 14 months.
Deepest condolences to the entire Wimer family from Alison, David and John Ellis. xo.
