My sympathies to the entire Bagley family on the passing of Bobby. Having been members of the same church and going through elementary school together, I have many memories that I cherish of Bob and all his brothers and sisters and parents, as well. May God envelop everyone in his loving arms and give you comfort that Bob is now with his Lord. Peace and love to all.

Dear Mrs. Bagley:

I just heard of Bobs passing today. I had recently gotten to know Bob as my company recently became a new client. Bob was the hardest working man I ever met. He worked so very hard to help my company get a new health plan for my staff. We had several meetings over the past number of months as he was the type of person that just grew on you. When we first met I felt like I had known him for years. He will be missed in the industry. I extend my heartfelt thoughts and prayers to you and your family Mrs. Bagley. I am a much better person for having known him and I too will miss him very much. My wife and I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Even though we have only known Bob & Lynn since they moved to our community a little over a year ago we have come to love the entire family Bob, Lynn, Snickers and Dixie. There isn't a thing Bob would not do for anyone. Bob will be missed by us and everyone in Averill's Arbor. We were extremely lucky to have shared this time with him.

All of us came from the same system and played against each other in GS and with each other in HS. Bob was a special student athlete and good Sox friend, there were so many special times and memories for so many. My deepest sympathies to the whole Bagley family. There's a special place for him.

We'll always fondly remember Bob eating blueberry cobbler while sitting on the floor of our den. He had a unique way of enjoying the moment, whether that was sight-seeing around historic sites, or simply watching a movie featuring a smart and lovable dog. He knew life was to be enjoyed. We felt privileged to have known him and to share in that joy. He will be missed.

Dear Lyn,
Chuck and I feel so fortunate to have met you, Bob, Snickers and Dixie as neighbors! You are both always so kind, stopping to let our grand kids pet the dogs when you walked them by the yard. Bob would always stop, chat, share stories and really, truly, was a genuine guy. We will miss him very much. We are so sorry that we are unable to attend the service tomorrow, but will be there in spirit. We are always here for you and Pray that God will take care of you, your family and help you through this very, difficult time. Please accept our heartfelt condolences at this very, difficult time.

Sincerely and with much love, Chuck and Judy Berls
