    My thoughts and prayers go out to Bob’s entire family. Robert Morris was my father’s friend,his cohort in many business schemes. I have many fond memories as a child of him ,and aunt Bev loading us up into a car for the drive in movies,car trips to Minnesota. The women and kids in one car and the men in another. I read my first play boy forum and later he teased me about spending too much time in the bathroom where he kept them.When a small child we all lived together in California and later here on the farm outside of Mason until he moved to Lansing. He gave me my first ride on a motorcycle and he was instrumental in founding the Jack Pine Motorcycle club.He was a brother inlaw to my mother and a good uncle to my brother and me. The last time I saw him at my grandmothers funeral he told me he would always be my uncle.Rest in peace Uncle Bob!

    Bob was my fathers best friend when I was a child. We (my family) spent many nights at his house while he and my father raced dirt bikes and go carts. I remember so many things about him and know he will be missed. Our prayers and love to his family from the Metler family.

    Marcy, you, Deb, and the rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Hoping to make it up for the service, if Mother Nature and my physical therapist allows. As always, you are in my heart.
