Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Bob,

I've just learned of Diane's passing on May 02nd. This is so sad and completely unexpected from our point of view over here in England.

She was a wonderful woman and friend of over 65 years standing and her passing will be missed by me and I'm sure countless others not just in her family but those who had the privilege of knowing her.

My deepest condolences to you, Bob and all of the family. I will be making a memorial contribution to Music Ministry at Castleton United Methodist Church.

It would be great if we could speak on the phone sometime soon.

My best wishes and love to you all.

Joe & Debbie Adams

Whitlow Family: I send your family fond memories of my high school friend Diane. I am forwarding this obituary to my brother, Joe Adams in London, England. Diane was his first high school date ~ a few years back~ as well as our friend. Joe was in Bob's class of 1952, and I was a 1953 graduate of MHS. We have heart felt memories of Diane, and we send your family heart felt prayers of peace for each of you.

What can I say, that hasn't all ready been said. We will be touched many times during our life time to say the least. As our preacher says" No one gets out alive." She is in good hands now with no more pain. Got Bless the family as they go through these difficult times. A class Mate of Bob.
