Bob will be greatly missed. I am sitting with my mother, Pauline Nolen, who is devastated at his passing. Pauline cared for Bob deeply which was reciprocal and was obvious in watching them together.

Pauline has Dementia, but Bob stuck by Pauline throughout it all.. I know how much she cared for Bob when I would be sitting with her listening to her health issues and concerns, but when Bob would walk in, all of a sudden Mom would perk up like a high school girl without a care in the world, greeting him with something like “hello, handsome”.

Pauline always wanted to look her best and put on her best face every time she saw Bob. Rest In Peace my friend! You will be missed.
