Mr. Landes was such a kind, gentle man. I am so sorry for your loss. Losing both your mom & dad so close together must be heartbreaking. May knowing they are now together once again comfort you. Prayers for peace & understanding are being said for you all. God Bless.

We were saddened to learn of Bob's death. He was a gentleman and a scholar, and the best left-handed golfer I knew. Also the best tenor in choirs. I liked his sermons and really enjoyed his friendship. You enriched the lives of everyone, Bob. We'll miss you, Bob. We extend sympathies to your family. Bob and Betty Blanchard
