Remembering Bob, kindness and sincerity always come to mind. While living in Oklahoma, it was always so special to get his little notepads that he would bring to the Sulphur 4th of July meeting. So many fond memories of this man and his endearing family. Esther and Elmer, may you find comfort in all of your memories. Love you!
