Bob sat right in front of me at church every sunday and always encouraged me when I was nervous to do "children's time" each month. He always told me that I'd do just fine and it took the edge off. He also said that all the people hugging me and shaking my hand were God hugging me. I'll keep that awesome thought always!

Bob(as I always knew you)you will be truly missed. You and Ollie have been considered dearest friends by my family for years. You were always there for my mom and my aunt when needed or just to talk to. My daughter looked to you as a grandfather that she will miss dearly. I believe that everyone that you came into contact with is a better person for it.

Poppie, I cannot put into words just how much you will be missed. You were always there for all of us if we needed anything. Seeing you and Gram all these years still in love was the best thing I have ever seen in my life so far. I love the way you guys were so in love for so many years. I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful role model as a grandfather! I will never stop missing you. Love, your granddaughter Missy.

Poppie, you were the best Grandfather that a man could ever be blessed with! You taught me so many lessons about being the best father, and husband that i could be. You always used to tell me how good the Lord had been to me by blessing me with my wife and children. Truth is, the Lord had blessed me many years before giving me you as my grandfather! You will always be in my thoughts and prayers until we meet again! Love, your grandson, Matt
