Not many people know that Bob took me to my doctor one day when I had a kidney stone attack. He waited while I saw my doctor, then took me home after I was released. He was a kind and thoughtful man. Enjoyed a beer now and then with friends and always had a funny story to tell. I will miss him!!! Dawn Martin (Attica, Oh)

I got to know "Poppa Shock" when I married Doug Heyman. I will miss seeing & visiting with him...I will especially miss his hugs. He talked so much about Geraldine & I know that he's happy again now that they're reunited..
God Bless! Tonya & Doug Heyman
