Condolences and prayers to the family. I worked with Bob for many years. Enjoyed his wry sense of humor and straight talk. RIP Bob.

I played senior softball with Bob. He may not have been the most talented softball player, but nobody was a better teammate. Bob always had a smile on his face, never complained, never had an unkind word to say about anyone, and always played his best. We will all miss him.

Becky I am so glad that God added you to our family. And while I know this is a time of sadness, may you always be reminded of the blessed assurance that Robert is with Jesus. I know Mom was so happy to see him when he arrived - what a reunion!! I see her showing Robert around and proudly introducing him everywhere. :-)
Love you and continued prayers.
