May God be with your family.
Mom and I are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We have both lost someone very special this year.
I worked with Bob at Michigan Bell many years ago. He was a pleasure to work with and a true gentleman.
Will always be remembered. He was an absolute pleasure to work for at Michigan Bell. He was a "class act" and a role model for me and many others. RIP Mr Diesing and God Bless you and your family. Don and Kathy Schemers
