Bob will be missed for his sense of humor, his corney jokes, his kind heart and willingness to help others. When ever anyone would be in our office and speak a different language he would say "You do and you will clean it up" , every now and then I find myself saying it. I pray for comfort and strength for all of you, he is no longer in pain and I find peace knowing I will see him again
