That's a great picture of Bob,he had such a wonderful smile! My brother John was just asking me about him on Saturday as we drove by some of those big blue silos on 40 west. He has fond memories of Bob as do I. I know you will miss him but I know your family have many fond memories to share as well. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go through these difficult days. May God bring you peace and comfort. Sincerely, Rhea Anne Hart
