Dear Friends and Family,

As you probably know Bob passed away this morning at 3:a.m. We intend to comply with the request he made in his will as to what should happen next. Bob will be cremated and his ashes later scattered. We will have a Memorial Service for Bob where he requested that humorous eulogies should be spoken by those who knew him.

The Memorial Service will take place on

Tuesday, December 1st
Beechers Funeral Home
1 Putnam Avenue
Brewster
NY. 845-279-3615

Visitation will be from 10-11 a.m. and the Memorial from 11a.m. to 1p.m.

I don't have email addresses for everyone so please pass the word to those you think would like to know.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Bob's name to Yale Cancer Center would be very welcome. Their address is Thank you all and I look forward to seeing those of you who are able to come.

Love,
Sherry Gaffney
