    Aunt Cathie, Ellen, Matt, Josh and Michelle,
    I am saddened by the loss of Unclle Bob. He was a kind man with a heart of gold. I feel honored to have had him in my life. I know that words seem meaningless at this time, but he is in his final resting place. He is surrounded by good people: Tim, my mom, his parents and others.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Catherine Barnello
