I was a Feeder Dispatcher when Bob started at UPS and worked with him a lot. He was always pleasant and did a very nice job and we had a lot of nice conversations. It was an honor to know Bob, RIP.
Prays for Bob and his family.

The Ferrara Family is filled with wonderful people and we’ve been honored to know many of them for quite a few years, especially Gina and her family. They’re all like more kids to us. God Bless all of you during this sad time but know that Bob is at peace now. Blessings to all of you 🕯
