Dear Joan and Family, How surprised and saddened I was to hear of Bob's passing. He had such a great sense of humor and always seemed to be in a good mood. I will miss not seeing him at the 8:30 breakfasts when I return in June. He always said that going to breakfast was the best part of Sundays. He enjoyed a full life and I pray that he is a peace and enjoying a just reward. Love, Arlene
I offer my deepest sympathy to the entire Frear family. I had the opportunity to work with Bob when he had the dental office on Mack. He was partnered with John Morehouse DDS at the time and I was his dental assistant. Bob was a great man whom will be missed dearly. My prayers and condolences to all of you. May he rest in peace!
