"Heartfelt condolences to Carol, Joan and families. I fondly remember youthful Bob and his family in Jamaica Plain as outstanding neighbors, and Bob as a upstanding friend and schoolmate. Though separated by many years and a thousand miles, we will join in your prayers as you celebrate his life and safe passage into eternal presence with the Lord."
"When I think of Uncle Bob, I remember all the August birthday celebrations we shared on Cape Cod for my granddad, Jim McGrath. Uncle Bob and Auntie Carol always made sure they had the most delicious chocolate cake with whipped frosting and cherries on top. Uncle Bob loved Auntie Helen and Jim (McGrath) and thus I loved Uncle Bob too. His smile was always so contagious and genuine. I am sure he is sharing a cocktail with Auntie Irene and the McGrath family in heaven!"
"I met him while I was a student at Brockton Hospital School of Nursing. In a world of hurried and sometimes less than pleasant physicians he was a source of calm friendly relief. He loved to take time to show us exactly what he was doing during his surgical day. He knew my father and always mentioned him. Some years later he removed my wisdom teeth with the same confident demeanor. I wish the world was filled with people like him. I hope his soul lives forever. His bright light will always shine within me."
