    My sincerest condolences to all the family and friends of Mr. Kaiser. I am a member of Unity Lutheran Church, and met Mr. Kaiser there. I did not know him well. However, everyone there liked him very much, including myself. He was always polite and a real gentleman. I was sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers are with him and may he rest in peace.

    Our condolences to Bob’s family. He was a true gentleman and a man of honor. I was the Pioneer Administrator for the Hawthorne Chapter of the Pioneers and Bob was a great officer of the club and as a volunteer he made a difference to many he served. He truly will be honored for his heart felt labors in this world. I just found out and know that we will meet again in the life beyond this one. To his family peace be with you.
