  1. Lunz Family,
    It was with deep sorrow we learned of your Father's passing. Mr. Bob was a kind and compassionate friend to our family for many years. My husband knew when I left for his shop on Saturdays I would not return empty handed. I so enjoyed hearing of your parents early years out of state and could always see your Mother's hand when she created displays in the shop. She was a gracious lovely lady. How precious their reunion must be.
    My prayer is God hold you all closer until that day when all sorrow is banished away.
    Mr. Bob will be greatly missed…

    God bless you,
    Faith Austin

  2. It was a true blessing working with Bob during the years he was at O'Farrell Realty… He worked in every way to help his customers making their future plans come true… He and Georgette were a pleasure to be with during many gatherings over the years…. Fond memories…Blessing to their family at this sad time of loss…
