    My deepest sympathies go out to the entire Zalewski clan. I hope that your memories of Bob carry you through this most difficult time. He will forever be in the eyes of those who loved him, in the places he loved to journey, and in the food he loved to eat. (I recall his red suit jacket from one Easter Sunday gathering. Whenever I see a red suit coat, I think of him). When you visit any of those, you will see him. Although he has left your presence, he is in the peaceful presence of his heavenly family. You are all in my prayers. Donna (Donovan) Morrison

    My heart is broken. He was my oldest brother. A great craftsman who could build anything and gardener that had the best flowers, herbs and vegetables in his garden. I will miss calling him and asking how he would prepare something I want to cook. He was fun to be around and had a great personality. As much as his family will miss him he will be welcomed by his family in heaven.
