My sister and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Robert Lohr. Our mother, Irma "Irene" Sheirer Banner, grew up in Bard Hollow. She and her brother, James "Jim" Sheirer, were friends with Robert Lohr and his family while they were growing up in Bard Hollow and remained friends as adults as well even after moving away from Bard Hollow. He was a really nice person and will be missed by many. Sincerely, Nancy (Banner) Redding and Judy (Banner) Rensch of Chambersburg, PA
