These photos brought back a flood of memories and tears of the wonderful example of a man our Uncle Bob was to us. Kind, gentle, humble, and helpful beyond belief. I thank the good Lord that he brought him into our lives as a member of our family. Uncle Bob always welcomed us into his home no matter where we were in our lives. I’m so thankful he was the husband to my unforgettable Aunt Sis. And the father to Bobby and Jodie. They truly had the best. We will never forget this one of a kind man. You will always be missed Uncle Bob. Until we meet again....So long.
