Papa you will always be my hero. The best memories I have in life include you. Thank you for always being there when I needed you.
I'm sorry you didn't get to spend more time with your great great grandson. But I know you and Granny will watch him from heaven.
I love you Grandpa

I will always remember you Bob. You were always so kind to me and always put up with Debbie and my antics. Great father, wonderful neighbor and friend to my father Grady Crawford. I have thought of all the great memories I shall cherish. The neighborhood won't be the same without you. But you will live on in my heart. R. I. P. Bob. You are very loved and shall be missed by all.
