Uncle Bob, a Veteran who returned Home
Many served, some came home, some did not. We honor their memory and service this weekend.
My mom's large family of nine brothers and sisters is down to one, the youngest girl Millie. Uncle Bob passed away today. I remember him as successful in business and handsome. The stories of his war record as a fighter pilot were part of my youth.
They lived for many years in Terre Haute Ind. and retired to Florida where he had a large oxygen tank distributorship.
They adopted two sweet girls who have families of their own, and both shared their sadness at his passing.
