My husband Walter and I enjoyed getting to know Bob on several occasions. We knew Bob was a lover of crab legs so several months ago, we picked Cindy and Bob up and headed to Red Lobster. We all had seafood of sort, but Bob got his crab legs..... and boy did He enjoy those crab legs. He age every last bit of them! Cindy shared that Bob had not eaten so good like that for some time. Bob was a good friend and brother in Christ. We will miss Bob very much!! He is resting in the arms of Jesus now where there is no better place!

Well Bobby I wish I was as good a friend to you as you were to me. I’ve always looked up to you even when I look down at you. But I know that you’ve always had a great heart you’ve always try to make deals were there weren’t deals. You always try to see the better side of something. This time you were ahead and walked on the other side. You’ll be missed your beloved forever and I’ll see you when I see you love your friend always and forever
