Dear Jinny and family,
I read the obituary on Saturday afternoon. My prayers and sympathies to you. I always enjoyed working with you and Bob at St. Lawrence.
I am currently pastor of St. Joseph in Waukesha.
I will remember you in my mass tomorrow.

My sincere condolences regarding the loss of Bob.

I was first introduced to Bob as a 4th. or 5th grade student at St. Lawrence grade school in Milwaukee.
He was my first basketball coach and had a great impact on my life.
Probably the 2 most important things Bob taught me were the importance of fundamentals and sportsmanship. The lessons he taught me have carried over into my adult life. He was a patient man and a great teacher. You have suffered a great loss – however, I’m sure he is in a better place now.
