Lulloff, Robert "Bob" (Thank You from Anita and Children - 2011)
THANK YOU - From Anita Lulloff and Children
It would take pages to capture all the words of gratitude to those who provided care to "Bob" in the late winter of his life, for the hundreds of cards and personal messages upon "Bob’s" passing, to the providers of flowers for the funeral and for the abundance of contributions in memoriam. But, following is a brief chapter to close out Bob’s earthly life with thanks to each and every one of you.
To Dr. Hardesty, Ashley, aides, nurses, and hospital staffs for their loving touch and tender care of both Bob and Anita. To the police, paramedics and ambulance services in their response to a "tough" 911 call. To Richard and Patricia for comforting us at Bob’s final bed side. To the community for its recognition of Bob’s public services.
To Tim and staff at the Gesche Funeral Home for their compassionate guidance to the family in all of the funeral arrangements. To Pastor Bryan for bringing all of our thoughts together, softly consoling the family and illustriously leading Bob’s way to his eternal life and providing nourishment to our souls. To Audrey for being Anita’s close friend. To the church staff. To Joe and Eileen honoring Bob with song and music. To "Howie" for sharing Bob’s business and friendship experience. To the pallbearers and honorary pallbearers for their living escort of Bob.
To the Patriot Guard Riders for their flag displays in Bob’s honor and to the Neillsville Veteran’s Council for their salute to Bob’s service to America. To the bugle player for playing taps. To the "kitchen crew" at the UCC for providing nourishment to our bodies. And as we rested, to friends who brought food to our home.
Forgive us for any who we may not have recognized as all of you associated with Bob’s and Anita’s lives are in our hearts.
We are so thankful to our Lord that He, in His way, gracefully took our beloved husband and Dad from his earthly presence to a place of everlasting peace where we will be joined again.
