    My sympathy to Dale & Darrell and all the rest of the Hein family. I can’t remember NOT having the Hein’s as neighbors and friends. Even when I was young I can remember trying to be on my best behavior around Bob, afraid if I acted too wild and crazy he wouldn’t let me play at their house. But I also remember when he thought something was funny he had the best smile and a great laugh and you knew

    I can’t list all the memories of Bob and Gert, and you can’t separate the names, they were my neighbor for over 50 years and friends like no other. We became neighbors 63 years ago this Spring. My sympahy to Dale and Darrell and the famiies, and how they loved their grandkids! When we were all retired we got to become even better friends, we had a little slower pace and free time. Our own community neighborhood was and still is, even tho changed, the best of times. Blessings, Dorothy
