Dear Family and Friends,
As most of you have heard, our beloved Dad and friend Bob Bammann passed away on Sunday January 16, 2011 from cancer. Our Dad was so full of life and vitality. As a family, we all prayed that God would have compassion on his soul and take him home in his sleep, and we are so grateful that our prayers were answered. His passing carries with it a great deal of sadness for all of us. We loved him very much and invite you all to share your love and memories of him with all of us.
We will be having a visitation time for family and close friends who would like to say their last goodbyes, on Thursday January 20 at Grace Memorial Gardens in Hudson, Fl. from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
