Dear Rev. Niehus (aka "Bobbie") I am so very glad I got to meet you over the telephone through your family and I am so sorry our trip to Chicago to see you did not ever get past telephone planning. Thank you for all your wisdom and devotion and for your humor and laughter too! You brightened our day whenever you called us and we will truly miss you! May the Love and Peace of God grant you eternal rest. Your forever friends and family from Buffalo, NY.
