  2. We will miss our dear friend, friend to our grandparents, mother, Michael, and my children and myself.
    So, so sad.

  3. Our condolences to the Ardire family. You will be in our prayers. R.I.P. Bobby.

  4. We were very saddened to hear of Bob's illness and passing. He was such a sweet man. Although we hadn't seen him in a good while, the last time we were together was such a fun day. It was a birthday celebration for his grandson, Nicky, and he was the perfect host and he had fun playing with the kids. We have this mental photograph of Bob…healthy, happy and joyous!!! Our condolences to his family…you had a wonderful man in your lives!!!! So sorry!!!!

  5. Sorry for your loss. I went to high school with Bobby and he was a friend of my late husband. May he rest in peace.

  8. We love you and will miss you so very much!
    We light a candle for a man who has brighten our lives!

  9. Marie and family,

    So sorry to hear of the passing of Bobby. I will miss those annual visits and time we shared talking, listening to music, talking about life, and drinking C and C, Cruzan and Corona's.

    The lost is to be mourned, take the time you need, but know that Bobby's circle of life was complete. I consider anyone who is able to live a life, where you get married to a beautiful wife, have kids, see then grow, see them married, and spend time with grandkids to be a full life. Bobby had so much more. He loved his wife with all of his heart, his children, grandchildren, and his faith as much. He served his country as "SeaBee" in the Navy and was proud of his contributions to the freedom of this country and the freedom we have today.

    As the husband of Minerva Mena Mohanani, Marie's 1st cousin, my journey in life is truly blessed to have crossed paths with him. I will cherish that memory by celebrating your life!

    Love you,

    Bobby rest in peace.

    PS Don't worry I'll bring the Corona's when I join you. ONE LOVE.

    Vinod Mohanani
