When I first heard of Bob's passing I was stunned and so stricken with grief and loss. When I came to this sight and saw the wonderful slideshow of his pictures and his warm smile I started to cry and couldn't go any further. So today I wanted to tell of my feelings about my cousin Bob. Growing up with him and all of his family was such a blessing. I remember sleeping over nights at their white house in Kenosha, so many laughs and such warmth in that house, it was the type of family everyone would dream of. Memories of all being together at Powers Lake, and even I stayed at the house they rented one summer there. Then at Bode Reunions what a blessing to have been born into such a loving family of Aunts, Uncles, and all my cousins. We were shown such love and closeness that many families never get a chance to know. We were all truly blessed. When I think of my cousin Bob, I think of a soft spoken, kind, generous, loving man who I will miss so very much. I know that we will all be together again on the other side and when that happens what a glorious reunion that will be. My deepest sympathies go out to Gisele, the children and all of my cousins who were his siblings. I feel your pain and your loss and wish you could know how much love is being sent to you all from my heart. God bless you with peace and strength to unite and hold each other closely thru this the saddest of loses. I will pray for you all and wish I could stand beside you at the funeral but it will be on my mind all day. Love and hugs Peggy Bode Evenson
