I am very sorry to hear this sad news.
Bob talked with so much love about the beautiful roses in Ireland: "Their color was very vivid and some were the size of cabbages." It made me feel that Bob's heart was like those roses.
My thoughts go out to Bob's family. Wishing them peace and comfort in this difficult time.

Thank you, P.J. , announcing that--I just heard the sad news. The Dublin Irish Festival has lost a great volunteer and the Columbus area Irish community has lost a great friend. May the peace of the season remain with his family in their time of sorrow.

This comment is actuall for all those friend of dear Bob. Since 1991, Bob has been my second father. It is with deep regret that I have to inform you that, on Saturday, December 20th, 2008, Bob passed away after a three week illness. Please keep Bob, his wife, children and 5 grandchildren in your prayers during this holiday season. A memorial service is planned for next Saturday in Columbus, at the Shamrock Club.

Heey there Bob, I love shooting but I never shot with live rounds. That was just an airgun in the garden of a friend of mine (we took shots on a picture of Hitler). We cant get weapons easy in holland althow I would love to have one. Shoting is fun and i'm not bad at it at all. Paintballing, lasergameing, airgun and online shoters. I have a huge fasination for the 2ndWW. I've been to Normandie france for 3 days. Seen undiscibeble things. I was at Utha beach at the moring of 6 june this year. If you want to se pictures let me know, i'll put them on my site.
