Memories Timeline


  1. I remember well your dad and my dad, George Baker, going fishing and hog hunting. They hunted hogs on our place many times. How they both did love to fish and hunt. He was a kind man and they were the best of friends. I am sure you will miss him dearly.

  2. Robert and my Dad were great friends. I remember them going hunting and fishing and having a great time together. They are together again and catching up on old times swapping fish stories with their old fishing buddies.

  3. Bob was such a good friend to me I remember when I first entered his home to take Carr on his wife he would always welcome me with a smile such a loving man shortly after that I started helping him and its so funny because every time take I would come see him he would say Lou! I can do things for myself he was so strong so I would sit down and begin to talk to him for hours and every time I leave I would tell him be careful going to st joe to pick lunch and don’t you be in that yard mowing and call me if you need anything he would laugh and say Lou! I will be just fine never would complain I’m going to miss him. We were special friends I had not heard from him in a couple weeks so he was on my mind so this morning I went by his house and left him a note in the box to call me not knowing he was in a better place looking down on me

  4. Back in the 1950s my first real job was with Tennessee Gas here in Victoria and Corpus Christi. I remember Bob so fondly as he was always in a good mood and was such a gentleman. Heaven is a happier place with him there. May God walk with all of you. Helen (Bower) Mustachia

  5. Our prayers and thoughts go out for Mike and the extended family. Mr. Miori always had a smile for us when growing up around the old STJ neighborhood…even when we would have to cross over in to the yard and retrieve all of those footballs that would accidentally land in flower beds and smash the flowers!

  6. We were sad to hear that Mr. Miori had passed away. He was such a kind,caring and loving man. He always had a smile on his face. He is a true example of a Christian gentleman. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Miori family at this time. May God bless you all.

  7. Mike, Sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He had a very long life and I trust remained healthy to the end. Hope all is well with you and your family. Where have so many years gone? Cecelia Kalinowski Helton
