You have my sympathy

Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I grew up next door to Blubber when we lived in O’Bryonville . He was good friends with my brother Dick Gunning. He had an infectious laugh and was a great guy as I remember. Sincerely, Mary Pat (Gunning) Murphy


The last of the Mohicans (Lakemans)

I grew up with Lakeman Family in O’Bryonville (Cincinnati).. 11 children in all.. Al was a Catcher for Cincinnati Reds around 1940.. Laura was one of the finest Female Base Ball players in Cincinnati.. Bob (Blubber) was a good ball player.. ( Called Blubber,, because he was so thin when young).. Laura, Bob, and I were together constantly when we were young… Laura had enough personalty for 2 persons.. Bob was a year younger than me,, Laura was 3 years older than me.. She took care of Bob & I.. There Father was one heck of a man… He was a character of the first order.. Families like this were common in O’Bryonville in those days… Half the town was Irish,, the other half German.. Beer was King in Town.. I am 87 now, and cherish the fond memories of these fine people. There will never be a town such as this again. Tom McDonough, 937-798-4142, [email protected]


May Robert rest in peace.

Although I never met Robert in person, I read all about him. What could be a finer tribute than to say I noticed he was a wonderful family man, and man of faith. Alife of honor lived. I am also beginning to know what a fine family he comes from more generally than even immediate family.

May God bless you always, and the God of all comfort is near you,
