Bobby, I'm so glad we were able to get together that year for Thanksgiving and were also able to go out to eat at B's restaurant. I will miss seeing you whenever I'm down there. I know that you are at peace in the most beautiful place and that you are reunited with Kim and all our other relatives that went before you. Rest in peace Bobby. Love, from your Yanky cousin Dawn

Uncle Bob, you were a true Hippie at heart. We shared some good times! I always admired your quick wit and sense of humor that have yet to be matched. I hope you and Sue are together again. You will be missed.

With love,

It was good to get to know you over the last several years. I always enjoyed hearing about your adventures and life. You were well read and could quote lines which always impressed me. Your quick wit was very entertaining. We will miss you. Rest in peace my friend!

I'm so grateful you were a part of my life and you are greatly missed. I will always remember the funny things you said and your unique way of looking at the world. Your love for animals and nature was very special. I can only imagine what you are seeing now. Rest well in the arms of Jesus and enjoy the peace and beauty of being truly home.

I listen to the Burl Ives Big Rock Candy Mountain song more often now knowing that was your favorite. I think maybe you have found it. Rest well. I love you.
