12 years went by in a flash & it feels like only yesterday when you left us. Miss you so much, think of you all the time and pray for the day we’ll get to see each other once again. Rest easy and show Dad around up there.
Love & miss you both so much.

Cannot believe it's been almost 6 years since you left us. It still feels like a cruel joke & that you'll come walking back thru the door with that laugh of yours. It's been so hard for Mom to accept & she sits by your grave & talks to you all the time. Send her a sign that your listening & give her some hope to hold onto. Miss you like crazy & wish I could hug you just one more time. Till we meet again, I love you.

Bob Today is a very hard day for me. The holidays are nearing and I remember how much you loved them. It's been so hard for so many of us that loved you so. I'm having a hard time trying to put the past behind me. They say it gets easier, I just don't see how. It is not easy losing a son. I wish so much I could turn the calander back to when you were here. Last year for me it was shock in losing you this year it is the reality of not having you anymore. I love you so much my angel and wish I could just talk to you again. Love you forever MOM

Happy Birthday Bob. It's been a very hard day for me. I remember 52 years ago when you were born. You were just the cutiest. It's been very hard for Melanie too. She misses you so much. People tell me it will get better but it just doesn't. I have good days and I have very hard days. Some times it doesn't take much to make me cry. I wish I could just talk to you again. I still see you the last 4th of July when you left us at the camp ground.You wished you could be there for it was so peaceful. I wish you were here now, you are my angel in Heaven now. I love you very much Bob. Mom

It's almost a full moon Bob. You were born in the full moon and how you loved to howl. I miss you more and more. Time is not healing the hurt. I talk to John and he tells me the same. I would give anything just to have another moment with you. You have always been such an upbeat kid.You never looked down.Jen had a little baby girl two days ago and I am going to give her your baby cup. I know how much you loved her.I think she will like that.Good nite for now my love. Mom

Theres so many things I want to tell you everyday so I write letters to you but there is no address in the stars. People tell me time will heal the pain but thats just a lie. When I seen you I should of talked but it hurt too much so avoided talking to you. You didnt even say goodbye that day in July. A few years later I had to say goodbye forever. I miss you everyday. I am who I am beacuse of you, I love doing the things I do because of you. RIP Spappy

Melanie, We are so sorry for your loss. Bob was a wonderful kind hearted man. We are here for you for anything you might need. Please call if you need anything. Our condolences to the entire Stanfield family as well. Such a horrible loss.

There are no words to comfort. Time will be the only healing factor. You are a strong family and I know you will make it through this. Bob was such a wonderful man. Cora and Rod, your were blessed with such a wonderful son. My Uncle John told me stories of when him, Bob, and Rick all hung out "years ago"! Bob was always the life of the party. I saw Bob about a month ago at Stewart's in Kerhonkson, there were no words, but there was that "hello" smile. I wish I took that chance to say hi, but let it pass. I didn't realize how close we lived to each other. I am so sorry for your loss. Your memories will never fade, and in time, you will all smile again when you think of him. Love and sympathy from myself and the Cafaldo family, Jen
