I am saddened to hear of Bob's passing. Although I only met Bob one time, I had a great time listening to his stories. May he rest in peace. God bless you and your entire family.

While I didn't personally know Bob very long, there was no doubt Bob was a strong man who absolutely adored his sweet wife, Anita. Anita quickly captured my heart, as I'm sure she did Bob almost 70 years ago. She was so excited to always share her wedding photos of her and Bob and proudly display Bob's wedding band on her necklace.

We will miss Bob dearly at Cedar Crest of Lewisville. Bob and Anita are both precious to our Cedar Crest family.

I did not get to know you, Robert, but I do share wonderful memories of your daughter Janice and how devoted she and your son-in-law Tim were to your care and to your wife's. I am so glad that you were all able to be together these last few years. It will bring a lot of peace to your family as they move through these next few days and months.
