Dear Family
Bob and I were members of the VFW on Dorchester Road foe many tears.
We shot pool and had a lot of good times. Bob was a great friend.
My prayers are with you.

Bob Jones was a great gift to Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital, serving for many years as our "Leprechaun". He'd buy his own candy and make rounds to all then nurses, staff and patients on St. Patrick's Day. We looked forward to it each year. What a dear gentleman.

It is with much sorrow to know of Bobs passing. He was a great person, friend and a beautiful dancer. He and Jerrie are dancing with the angels. Please accept my deepest condolences and sympathy.

So very sorry for your family's loss. My Father Billy C. OWENS relieved "Bob" of his duties in Italy after his tour of duty was up. Prayers to Dee/ Harry and all family members.
