Bob Boese 


Curt Knapp honors Robert...

Didn't know you, Robert, but it don't mean nuthin'.  I would have flown through
Hell to get you out.  God rest your soul, young man.


These messages were left in the Faces On The Wall
notebook that travels with the tribute...

You are always in my heart.  Miss You.
Love Sis
Vickie Boese Hapik

Your son turned out great!


This poem was sent to Ann Boese, Bob's mother, shortly after Bob
was taken from them...

They say time heals all sorrow
and helps us to forget.
But time has only proven, how
much we miss you yet.
It broke our hearts to lose you; but
you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you the day
God called you home.
A million times we've longed for you,
a million times we've cried.
If love could have saved you, you
never would have died.

With Love,
Mom, Bro, & Sis
