  1. Many, many cherished Christmas and Thanksgiving memories are flooding back to me at this time. Sitting at the kids table, Uncle Bob saying grace, opening presents, playing wish cousins and wonderful conversations. I am sure that Grandma and Uncle Bob are sharing hugs and smiles in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with our family to heal and find peace in the coming days.

    All my love,

    Brandi

  2. We send our deepest heartfelt sympathy to Janet and family in the loss of Bob. He is going to be deeply missed on Sundays greeting each one and his love to talk. May God be with you during the healing process

  3. Sorry to lose my dear friend from years back. Bob and I became real close friends while working at Fulton National Bank’s Data Center in downtown Atlanta from 1965 thru 1974 and continued to work at the same company until I was laid off in 1984. Bob’s Christianity was always evident in his work ethic and honesty. He will be missed by his family and friends, but the world will once again lose a great man.

  4. Janet & family,
    It was always a joy to know Bob..he was an all around good person & you knew he was a Christian man just by being around him.
    Our heartfelt prayers & sympathy go out to you all.
    The world has lost one of its best but WE know where he is now,
    Bless you all.

  5. Janet, Greg, and girls, My heart is so heavy with this loss. Ginny & I just saw Bob at Kroger recently. Our prayers are with you as you mourn and learn to heal. We will miss our neighbor of over 40 years, he was a real sweetheart. Please let us know if we can be of help in any way at all, we’re just 2 doors away. We love you and are here if you need us–please call. Much love from the entire Brockmann Family.
