  1. Dear Marich Family,

    Dennis so enjoyed having coffee with Robert and just visiting. He was a delightful person and touched many lives. May God comfort you as only He can during this difficult time. Our prayers are with you. Unfortunately, Dennis cannot attend the service tomorrow as his father had a stroke and he is in Arizona. But, our thoughts will be with you.

    Susie and Dennis Henry

  2. Elaine, Scott and Cam- I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Bob was always a great presence in my life and like a second father to me. I remember listening to his comedy records with him in his basement and laughing hysterically! He will be deeply missed. I know he is with Aunt Nancy and my mom Millie again, and they will watch over us.
    Love always
    Karen, Mitch, Dante, and Gino.
