How heart warming it was to find this page and to see that total strangers remembered and honored my Uncle Bob, my grandmother's oldest brother. Growing up I heard so many stories from my great-aunt about her "big brother". In her eyes, he was indeed a hero for far more reasons than the tragedy and particulars of his untimely death. Thank you to all those who have taken the time to write on his wall.
