McEwen family and relatives, We are sorry for your loss. What wonderful tribute your dad leaves behind. I went to school with Rob at LCC and could always tell that he was raised to be a gentleman. May you be surrounded by memories that make you all smile through the tears. With sincere respect, Barb Hullihen

PatSo sorry to read of Bob's passing. I certainly have nothing but fond memories of you guys from many years ago when we were neighbors and preceded your family expansions.At least you have many progeny and their offspring to help modify your grief. It may seem strange but for some reason I was thinking of you guys a few days ago and wondered what happened to your kids. Maybe one day you could fill me in on your family history.I hope all is well with you or are you starting to show signs of age like me. I'm presently visiting Cleve Clinic on a daily basis for radiation to prevent a recurrence of my lung caner, which had reappeared after a five year absence. On top of that my macular degeneration is taking a toll of my eyesight. But I'm still healthy,eat like a horse and try to stay sharp mentally and physically. I wondered if you are still living in your dream house or have you moved. I don't honestly know if we will ever see each other again but it would be nice to stir those old memories.I guess that's out of the realm as is your old training in ballet or seeing Bob's folks cat leaping to the fireplace mantel in Oberlin.Anyhow Bob was very lucky to have you for a wife and mother of his kids and your niche in my life is full of pleasant memories.Thankyou and godspeed,Harry Lieben
