IN MEMORY OF BOB


In Memory of Bob Niehaus

Friday, July 1, 1940 - January 7, 2022


My “Cousin Niehaus,”

A legend passed away,

Today,

Gone before us,

To teach you and I ,

One more lesson in life,

The lesson,

How to die.


Death, be not proud,

For you have stole,

A soulmate,

from the crowd:

A kind man, a husband,

Children, a family,

Blessed with grandchildren,

Of him we all are proud.


Though gone,

Yet to be,

Long remembered,

His spirit rests with God,

Yet lingers in the souls,

Of the good souls,

That knew him well,

Here on Oz.


At peace,

At home,

Bob, watch over us.

Memories you take with you,

Memories left behind,

To continue to bless our journey.

Those memories on our mind.


Though body and soul go with Bob,

His spirit still remains,

In the hearts and depths of those close to Him,

Believe?

Just ask him,

A question now,

His spirit renewed in his refrain.


I shall remember,

My friend, Bob,

By his goodness,

And eternal smile,

His endless sense of humor,

And laughter beguiled,

His gut wrenchingly funny

Stories

And bear-

Hugs shared.


I am blessed,

That Bob and I,

Met along the way,

Let us Pray,

May the soul of this faithful departed,

Now,

In the hands of God,

Rest In Final Peace. Amen.

Happy Bday, Bob A


Today,

Silently,

A poem passed into existence

Honoring a man I once sat with

Telling old timers’ tales and myths.


No one told me of his memorial

As if I didn’t care,

But I did.

Anywhere’s I miss the old guy

The Big Guy.

You see

Me

Thee

We

We all remember him in our souls

They broke the mold

When They invented

Bob

Your Father, my Niehaus brother

Related?

Oh for sure.


So for one more time

For one more rhyme

Let us gather

And hold hands

ALL of us

As he would have wanted

Honoring the reason for your existence

The Big man

Niehaus.


Brother Tom


What saddens me is that guy brought…
