  1. Bob was a gentle person, had the bluest of blue eyes and was proud of his Irish heritage. Although shy, he had lots to say and enjoyed talking about Hoboken’s history. He was my neighbor and more so, my friend. I will miss his sweet smile.

  2. Thanks for the memories.
    Of kitties everywhere.
    Your history of Mile Square.
    The joys of a driveway.
    The rockettes on Broadway.
    How lovely it was.

    Thanks for the Memories.
    Of our birthdays in the summer.
    Blizzards making Tom’s a bummer.
    Our adventures in New York City.
    Zagat restaurants even when gritty.
    How lovely it was.

    Thanks for the Memories.
    Of a good and caring friend.
    Even when on the mend.
    You may have said adieu.
    But I never will forget you.
    And how lovely it was.

    I’m going to miss you Bobby.
    Love, Sheila
