  1. It is with deepest sorrow that we say farewell to our dearest neighbor and great friend, Robert Maines. We will always remember Bob’s kindness and love. We will never forget him being there for us in times of need. Bob was an awesome human being with an abundance of knowledge to share. We will especially miss those silly moments when we made him laugh. God Bless you, Bob.
    Rest in Peace. With love in our hearts for you always, Gary & Helene

  2. Oh my dear friend. I have so many wonderful memories of Bob and the time I spent with you both. Such a sweet man. Incredible that I just heard his voice on the phone a short few days ago. I so wish I could be there with you today. Muitos muitos beijinhos minha querida amiga.

    Gail! Soooo sorry for your loss! Bob was a dear, we had fun these past few weeks. Even here, high in the Caucasus I was able to attend the funeral and hear Russ and Gail speak. We will meet for coffee soon, and not long after that the four of us including Bob and Al will get together. Love you much. -Gigi
