Hey Hon,
I miss you so much! Whoever would have thought after being happily married for 32 and 30 years each, that we would be blessed to have been married 15 more happy years. We always said we were married 77 years!! I know the Lord brought us together and blessed our marriage every day. I thank you for having been my husband, my lover, my best friend, and a loving father and grandfather. You were always by my side in all the heartaches we went through when Donna went home to our Lord and you always embraced Jennifer, Heather, and Katie as your grandchildren. We laughed together and cried together. We completed each others thoughts and sentences before we spoke them!! Hon, you were a special man who always cared and always wanted to help. My heart aches for you, but I know that our Lord will carry me through till we meet again in Heaven.
All My Love,
The other "Hey Hon"

Marilyn (Mom), Your time together seems so short and full of bumps in the road, but I know your anchor holds. Bob was greeted into heaven by Donna's wonderful smile and the one who heard his borning cry. One day we will all be reunited for eternity. Our worries will be over and our tears will be gone. You are always in our hearts and thoughts. United in His Love, Janet, Lou and Family
