    My deepest sympathy to Jeanne Waliczek and her family in the death of her dear dad. Jeanne frequently spoke of this very fine gentleman and her great love of him.
    May he rest in peace and may Jeanne and her family find joy in the memories they hold dear and the great promise of our faith.
    Praying for all of you.

    Your father was a wonderful man. Though he only knew him for one night, he most certainly left an impression on Keith. I still see your Mom and Dad in my mind as when we were children. They haven’t changed except with age. We will pray for him on the 9th. Sending out our love.

    My wife Yuriko and I first met Bob and Jeanne in 1955 when we returned to the States from Japan. Bob worked with me in the Air Defense Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base as a Radio Maintenance
    Technician. We enjoyed many years both in and out of the service. No finer friend could a man ask for in this life! May God continue to shed his blessings on him and his dear family.
