Words cannot express our appreciation for the staff and administration at Syracuse Home Association of Baldwinsville for the tremendous care and compassion shown our father the past three years, as well as the friendship and comfort they provided our mother each day.


  1. So sorry for your loss. I will always remember Bob as I was just out of high school and my first job was in the Service Dept at Sealright. What an experience I had with a great bunch of guys to work for – they all will be remembered especially Bob. I also got to chat with Bob a bit when Richard ( I believe) was basketball coach for my grandson. My sympathy.

  2. Dear Nan, Rick and I send our deepest condolences , Rick will always have fond of memories of Bob and Mike.
