Dr. Hurtig: I was checking for email addresses for Mark Johnson Plumbing customers today and discovered that your father passed away in February. I am so sorry to hear this. We so enjoyed working for him. He always had stories to tell and kept us entertained. He was truly one-of-a-kind!

I am so, so sad I won’t be hearing his jolly voice over the phone. He made our day when he called us. I am really, really missing his emails. Almost daily his emails delighted me. Some made you think and most made you laugh. He had such a wonderful contagious laugh. Even though I know he is very happy with Aunt Dot and Danny, I am missing him everyday. Dolly, our hearts are with you as we know you are going through this very, very sad time. Catch our kisses. We love you! Phil & Jaye

Mon Cher Cousin Dolly, He was adorable! He made us laugh! He made us celebrate life! He kept us, the family, connected. He was thoughtful and generous. He is an inspiration - keeping himself healthy to one hundred and two !! I miss my Uncle Bobby... It doesn't get easier, does it? I miss him more and more as the days go by. I miss that I can't chat with him about all the little things of life. Just short chats that were so fun! He was the pinnacle of our family and he held us together with his energy and generous spirit. I love and miss him. With so much sympathy and love, Cousin Jan

Dolly, I am so sorry for your loss. The last time I spoke with your Dad, he sounded so upbeat and optimistic. He was wonderful to me when we worked together. Great that he is with Danny and your Mother in Heaven.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dolly, for nearly 50 yrs I thought( and spoke occasionally) about your father around Nov 4-5 because my birthday was the day after his. For many many yrs he placed a note or bottle of wine in my locker at Met CC to commemorate our birthdays even though I was 25 yrs his junior. We last spoke little over a yr ago when he called my wife Priscilla and I on New Yrs Eve to wish us his best. Many of us have very fond memories of Bob from his days with us at Met CC. He was quite a man. John Dalton

Dear Dolliann, I regret that I never had the chance to meet your father in person, but I am grateful for the interactions I had with him over the last three years. Your father was a good man who did many great things over his long life. I will miss speaking with him as he used to call me to have masses said for loved ones and friends in memory of your brother, Danny. We had some great conversations about his life and his family. He loved you dearly and was so proud of all your accomplishments. With my sincerest condolences and love, Amanda Langley Cabral
